I'm getting ready to be away from DD for three days for a business trip. First time away overnight since DD was 9 months old. I'm no longer pumping regularly and DD (almost 16 mo. old) only nurses briefly 3-4 times a day (AM/right after work/PM before bed plus sometimes in the middle of the night). She doesn't take a bottle anymore so I'm wondering...will she self-wean if she goes almost 3 full days without "ninny". I only ask because DH and I were talking about the trip and he said "maybe she'll just decide she doesn't need it anymore after you return". Just got me thinking.
[Side note-DH is not forcing this. Always has been SO supportive of both co-sleeping and letting DD nurse as long as she needs to. He just mentioned it as an idea].
The whole nursing thing is really "out of sight, out of mind" with her. As long as I'm not around, she's ok and doesn't ask for it, but the minute she sees me (after I come home from work, etc) she demands ninny no matter what. I plan to handpump while on the trip just to relieve the pressure and keep my supply "activated" (just in case) but I'm just wondering if anyone has had similar experiences.
