Billy is showing no signs of stopping yet It will be interesting to see how long he nurses for. He only has a few feeds a day from me and has just dropped another. But he still asks for milk so I doubt he'll stop for a long time yet.
This is quite an interesting article. It suggests that completely child led weaning is unlikely to happen before age 4.
I always said I'd allow Alice to self wean, but it hasn't worked that way. For a start, I got pregnant, so that already interferes with milk supply/taste and also unfortunately my feelings when nursing. We've night weaned, I don't offer milk, and postpone feeds if they're not convenient. Despite all that though, she's booby obsessed! She usually nurses at least 6 times a day, and asks for a lot more. I have no doubt she'll be well over 3 before weaning.
