Re: How does child-led weaning occur?
I didn't see it with my girls at age 2, either. And yet they both weaned spontaneously at age 3!

I would think that the first birthday would actually be a difficult time to wean- the baby is still very dependent on mom for nutrition and for comfort, and isn't necessarily ready to make the jump to solids. And that, I think, is why we expect weaning to be a battle. Most people are weaning right when it's really difficult to wean!
A piece of good advice I got here is this: don't borrow trouble from the future. If you're happy now, don't let concern over what might or might not happen over the next months/years wreck your happiness. If you come to a point where you're ready to make a change, deal with it at that point.
