    I can't say he's 100% weaned because he is asking about once a week to nurse but that is the only time he asks and that was the last regular session he wanted.

    Well I'm not really sure if my LO is really weaned or not. But the last session regular session he dropped was when I got home from work.

    After that it's just been random nursing sessions and slowly asking less and less. In the past 3 months he's probably only nursed a handful of times.

    DD is dropping the bedtime session right now. She was nursing 1X per day for nearly 6 months.

    Well, I am not totally sure my LO is fully weaned, but her last remaining session (that she hasn't asked for in 3 days) is her first-thing-in-the-morning session.

    I don't remember!! I don't know when his last session was. He went down to once a week and then just stopped. I know it wasn't bedtime or naptime because due to pregnancy anxiety those had to go. I needed distraction when nursing.

    Clayton was down to just nursing at nap and before/during bedtime. Then he was down to just at night, and then just before bed. Then it was to the point that I had no milk and he only latched on for like seconds on both sides, and it just seemed pointless to me. I just stopped one night and he only asked for it a few nights. He very quickly forgot even how to nurse, he would kinda place his mouth on my nipple and then grin at me. He couldn't remember how to latch on. I answered bedtime on the poll.

    In my case, we purposely weaned the before bedtime nursing to teach him to get himself back to sleep easier at night. It was fairly easy to do though, and he stopped asking very quickly. We're down to the occasional morning session. I thought we were heading to fully weaning a couple months ago, but since then my milk has started to come back (I'm close to 7 months pregnant), so now I'm a little stuck - he's getting back into it! DS keeps talking about how "there's milk coming out of the boobies".

    Thomas's last to go was the bedtime feeding. It gradually got quicker and quicker, and then he just wasn't interested at all.
