My son is 3yrs. 3 mos. and very addicted to nursing. I know I should wean him, but I always believed in letting the child decide when they no longer needed to nurse. This approach worked with my daughter, who gave it up at 2yrs. 8mos.
While I am in no rush to give up the closness we share morning and night, as I know he is my last, I am concerned about him starting school in the fall. Part of me knows he has to stop soon.
What I need to know from anyone who might have nursed this long, is will he give it up on his own? or does he need help to give it up? I am having a hard time telling him that what has been a comfort for his whole life is now wrong.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
