Re: Pressure to Wean
The Boy is 10 months now, and a lot of people are asking when I am going to stop, and when I tell them when he's ready, they always ask what will happen if he is 3 and still wants to nurse. I never know how to answer, but I have come up with my own way of saying I don't know. LOL! My initial goal was 1 year. With that right around the corner, I think a new goal will be set.
My husband has also begun to ask, but he said in the beginning that he would support me in any way possible with breastfeeding, and he is not pressuring me to stop. Thankfully it is more of a curiosity.
All that extra information to say that I think one should stop when mother and/or baby are ready and not before!

Oh, and I'm a cloth convert. Late in life. But only at home. Daycare isn't having it.
