    Awww, sounds sad, I'd be upset if Jasper suddenly didn't want boobie.

    My mum said that at about 9 months I decided I didn't want boobie anymore and I was given a sippy cup and didn't look back. She wasn't happy and was really supprised as she'd had to talk my 2.5 year old brother off the breast when she was pregnant with me.

    PERSONALLY - totally just my opinion I get that your sad about it - but it sounds to me like a 'good time' for it... he might just be ready to give it up.

    Mum told me even once I'd stopped BFing she still had milk for a couple of weeks and I still asked for the odd comfort suck, which meant she got to say 'goodbye' to breast feeding properly.

    GOODLUCK! And :hug:

    My DS stopped BF at 16/17 months. I was happy/sad. Happy he's growing up and sad to give up that time with him. But I let him stop. He too had the odd comfort feed as he gave it up - which is why i say 16/17 months when it was closer to 16.

    Personally I'd just let him give it up since he seems ready.
