Re: Will she ever self wean? Three and no interest in weani
You sound so frustrated and conflicted, mama! I think the question here is, what do YOU want? What level of nursing are YOU comfortable with? At this point, it is 100% reasonable to set limits on nursing. You can choose not to nurse during the day, or to not to nurse longer than X amount of time or X number of times per day... Often some limits on demand can result in a mom who is happy to continue to nurse- even to age 4, or beyond! And limits are a step towards total weaning, so they are useful in that respect, too.
If you set a limit- let's say it's something like "You can nurse until I count to 10" or something similar- don't be too surprised if you get pushback and tantruming from your toddler. A dedicated nurser doesn't necessarily give up unrestricted breast access without some sort of struggle. But screaming doesn't mean you have to give in!
Weaning is dance between mom and baby. Sometimes mom will lead, sometimes baby. If you're feeling the need to push the process a little at this point, that's okay! You can still allow your baby to self-wean while setting some boundaries.
