Just to encourage you.... my daughter self-weaned just before she turned 2 and I thought I would be SO sad and miss it, but really it was just fine. I was fine and she was fine. And now that she's headed toward 2 and a half, I can't imagine nursing her. I'm not against nursing past 2 or anything like that, I just realized that children are more resilient than we think they are. and 2 years is a LONG TIME to nurse!
