Re: Not sure whether to wean or not- almost 14 mo
He will eventually stop by himself, I promise! He's not going to be 5 years old and still waking to nurse- though he may still wake at night and need someone to come in and help him back to sleep! The main issue with self-weaning from night nursing is the time span involved. He could still be nursing at night when he's 2 or even 3 years old. This is why a lot of moms ultimately push the process a little, and do mama-led weaning (as opposed to baby-led weaning) for the most irksome feedings. There's no-one here who will judge you for choosing to continue night nursing, or for choosing night-weaning. It's a very personal choice and there's no one right way to do things!
