For all the times people wold me "the longer you wait, the harder it will be to wean him!!" I really feel like they could not have been more wrong!
I could not have planned it better myself (I didn't really plan anything actually).
Once I got pregnant again, and with my son being a toddler, as exhaustion set in and sore boobs I started to long for weaning and was not sure what do to. But my son always stayed one step ahead of me-- maybe the milk changed due to pregnancy but he easily dropped his morning nursing and just had no interest.
He kept up his bedtime nursing for about a month but that grew shorter and shorter and just around the time I started to wonder "should i try to skip a day?" He skipped a day. Then another day. And then he just skipped an entire week as of today so I think he might be all wrapped up!! I still offered every night this past week (boobs uncomfortable) but he had zero interest so I really feel like he was 100% ready to move on with ease, which is a nice feeling!!
My son is 1 month shy of turning 3 and I must say we've had a wonderful nursing experience... the early months were rough as all get out (scabbed nipples, horrible supply issues, three rounds of thrush, reverse cycling when I went back to work, clogs when I went back to work, etc!!) But after we got through that hard start, it's been SUCH a blessing to us both to enjoy his great health, great moods, and easy bedtimes :-) I feel very proud of getting past the challenges and even the long months of crazy pumping. It was a nice perk that from age 12 months through now has been 100% easy and a joy!
I can't believe we made it!! I thought I'd be sad when it ended, but being pregnant definitely has me feeling quite "ready" for the weaning too :-)
