My son (nearly 5) and daughter (nearly 3) sleep with us in a huge bed ....... my son is night weaned but really doesn't get why he will wean in the future .... i have told him breastfeeding will be difficult when his teeth fall out and that his mouth will change shape ..... he really doesn't understand. I can see how others weaned their children by getting daddy to get them to sleep but mine wouldn't understand why that should change after so many years!! and the morning wake up cuddles and boob are their ritual!!!
so what i really don't get is that 'many people say they will wean naturally' .... but i have yet to hear a story of someone who just let it happen at such a late age ..... There has been a weaning process of some sort .....
