So last night I was asking DD when she would be done nursing completely and she said when she's 8. Uh, no sweetheart, mommy's about done. Anyway, I'm trying to encourage her toward being finished by/on her 5th birthday. Think it's realistic to just say that's when it is and stick to my guns on it? She's currently nursing at bedtime before story (every once in a great while she'll skip it, but that's not often) and sometimes in the mornings (we skip it on days we don't have time before school or the gym, when she sleeps with DH, etc.). Anyway, I just feel like I'm at a point where I want to be completely done. I know I experience a lot of worry, guilt, and embarrassment because of it, and I honestly think she's old enough that she should be able to face life without it, KWIM? So how do I gently give her the final nudge. If I wait for her to self-wean, it'll take years, and I'm just not willing to do it much longer. I want want want to be done before she's 5, but she is still really resisting it. Anyone got a copy of How Weaning Happens they'd be willing to lend me? I read it years ago, then gave it away thinking I'd still remember it all when she weaned. I had no idea she'd nurse this long!
