Re: wondering - will he ever want to wean himself?
I hear you loud and clear! I know how it feels to be nursing an otherwise independent healthy willful clever cheerful cute as a button boy!
You can be the conduit to show him what is possible, to show him other ways he can have quality one on one mommy time with out nursing.
If he readily and with out fuss will drink a sippy cup while sitting on your lap and you sing or read to him...
If he resists, if he cries and needs to nurse instead, then I would respect his wishes.
Children do not nurse past the point of needing to, either nutritionally or emotionally.
That's how I did it, and it actually caught me by surprise how quickly ds3 happily preferred puzzles, books and songs instead of breastfeeding.
