I sometimes wish we could go back in time and see what moms did hundreds and thousands of years ago when it came to nursing, before the bottle and before it was "socially acceptable" in the western culture for children to put themselves to sleep.
I nurse LO to sleep right now and she is almost 3 months. I love it, she loves it. But, I'm still hearing mixed concerns, which in turn is making me concerned, that it will be difficult to get her out of wanting to fall asleep at the breast when she is older. I've read about how children can naturally wean themselves off when they are ready, but because very few women in my family breastfed (only my SIL but she weaned her babies before a year) I have no one to ask for advice. My mom is all about not CIO so she just tells me to do whatever works, but even still she doesn't know from experience what kind of advice to give me.
Can anyone put this FTM's mind to rest? When it does come time to wean (a while from now, as I hope to BF over a year), what is a tear-free way to do it? Resources I can go to?
