    My little one is very active at 15 months and so she will go hours without nursing if I let her. I have taken to offering if I am down on the floor playing with her and she will usually take me up on it. Usually I just have to mention the word and I can see her think, "Oh! That is a great idea!" If she is not asking much and you are not offering she will wean. Also it will cause your milk to decrease and she might get frustrated when she does nurse and stop nursing altogether.
