Comments: Bye-bye Nur-nurs

I feel for you. Squink weaned himself at 10.5 months. I was completely unprepared. It was August and the AC was not working well, I am sure my milk was hot. One afternoon he just pushed away and refused, he continued to refuse for 4 weeks, I was pretty heartbroken. He even refused pumped milk after a while... talk about trauma! Here I was planning to do this until he was at least two and he goes and makes up his own mind.

Sounds like a bittersweet moment for you--but before you know it, you'll have a brand new nurser in your arms again!

My 15 mos old is down to nursing only at night. Bittersweet is right.

I sympathize. The Squid is only 9 months and still loves to nurse, but now that she's on a lot of solids and not sleeping with us, we're down to 3-4 times a day. I miss the constant nursing that used to make me feel like a milk-producing machine who was constantly yanking her shirt up over her chest.
