My son has officially weaned himself just shy of 16 months. At first my goal was to make it a year and not to have to ever give him formula. We made it, but then a year came and went and he was still nursing (albiet down to morning and night since I work full time and I had stopped pumping). Then on 4th of July, ds decided that he would rather play than nurse first thing in the morning and that was the end of that. Then last week, he started popping off after one or two sucks and saying "bed, bed." So, into the crib he went. I have had absolutely no discomfort whatsoever and ds seems perfectly happy. What I didn't expect is to feel so ambivalent about his weaning. In some ways I am happy that I truly have my body back and that dh can start putting him to bed some nights But, in some ways I am sad that I no longer have boobie in my bag of tricks and that ds will no longer be getting breast milk. I wonder now if I could have done more to keep him nursing and feel a little guilty that I didn't try harder.
