Re: does it get harder to wean the longer you go?
I definitey think it's easier to wean when they are older. They are more able to understand resoning, limits, conditions, etc. So you can explain to them that mommy can't nurse right now and they don't just feel like mommy is rejecting or denying them something they need. I found that night weaning in particular was much much easier than I'd imagined it would be because I waited until my daughter was ready to do it, and that was around 19 months for us.
