I know my son's weaning started back when he started solids but he has always loved to nurse and even though he is almost 3.5 he hasn't wanted to give it up yet and was still nursing 2-4 times a day. We have talked about weaning, read Maggie's Weaning, and discussed having a weaning party. This morning I got home from work and was discussing my daughters' upcoming birthday party and if they would like to go ice skating and my son said I do I want to go ice skating for my weaning party (the funny part is I didn't understand what he was saying I made him repeat weaning 3 times until my husband translated it for me. So I told him he could have his weaning party there but he couldn't nurse for 2 weeks. I guess he really loves to ice skate because he didn't nurse once. He didn't even ask. I was sleeping most of the day because I work nights but he woke me once to get him a drink and snack while my husband was at church and he didn't ask. Then when I woke to leave again for work he was taking a nap. I commented to my husband this was his first day without nursing and one of daughters excitedly said Dane's weaned. I had to explain to her it probably wouldn't happen that fast but this was a start. Then I got a little teary eyed. Never would have thought I would have nursed him so long but I will miss it when he's done. Just thought I'd share have really enjoyed reading some of your ladies weaning stories.
