Re: 2 years
with everything the PP wrote. Tell your DH and MIL that the negative comments stop YESTERDAY.
I just want to point out that you are already in the process of weaning. Weaning starts as soon as you start giving your baby solid food. After that, it's a long, slow transition from being 100% breastfed to being 100% on solid foods. Baby is going to gradually drop nursing sessions. If you're thinking "But she nurses all the time!", remind yourself that there will be upticks in demand when your baby is going through a new developmental stage or getting a tooth, and that what really matters is the general trend. I bet your LO is nursing a lot less now than she did at 6 months, or 12 months, or 18 months. If you do nothing, she will eventually drop all her sessions and self-wean. But don't expect it to happen at age 2! Kids who are allowed to set the time of their own weaning tend to wean later- for example, my kids self-weaned at age 3, and a lot of moms hear have kids who went to age 4. Don't worry about the future, though- if you're enjoying nursing right now, focus on that. If you get to a point where you're ready for a change, then start cutting back.
