18 mth old losing interest?
My lo is 18 mths now and she seems to be much less interested in nursing. She is now nursing 5 times per day but I offer about half the times and the length has gotten much shorter. She was nursing 10-15 min and now its 5-8 min. She also seems frustrated sometimes, patting my breast and popping off. I do hear swallowing though and I have always had a huge supply. I was really hoping to make it till age 2 since she has dairy allergy but I don't want to make her. She is also pigging out on solids the last month. She gets a spoon and goes to the fridge and begs or signs for food all day long. And no, I am not pregnant.
Is this the normal course of weaning or am I doing something wrong here? Should I pump to get the supply back up?
It just seems like she is a bit young to be weaning but I wasn't sure and I don't know anyone who has nursed this long.
