Baby (well... toddler) boy will be 17 months in a few days, and for the last week or so has reduced his time on the boob before bed, the last two night he didn't even want any boob.
I usually let him nurse to sleep for his afternoon nap as he comes home from nursery school and it's our time to wind down and reconnect, but now he also signalled that he wants to fall asleep on his own without boob. He still nurses, but like with the bed time he nurses untill he is relaxed and then wants to climb into bed.
The thing is I always hear "babies don't wean under 2 years" and I'm doing everything to encourage nursing when he is with me, so I am not sure if he is just weaning on his own or not . He is very independant though and likes to do stuff on his own.
So right now we have the following "schedule":
- wake up nursing
- nap time nursing (which he has been cutting short)
- wake up from nap time nursing (which is more comfort nursing more than anything)
- bed time nursing (also been cutting short, even refusing)
He sleeps through the night, but when he does wake up he will nurse back to sleep. I do also have a cold and it might have lowered my supply, could that affect it too?
