Like so many other things that are part of the mother-child bond, it's really hard for men to understand how women feel about nursing - or more specifically, not nursing. It can be the hardest thing in the world to have the nursing relationship come to an end and even the most sensitive of men can't quite understand why you wouldn't like to finally and completely have your body back.

Do what feels right for you and don't give up that morning nurse until at least one of you - you and Delaney - is really ready to do so. I still miss that one nurse a day...


So glad to hear everyone Chez Vous is feeling better :)

I'll echo MamaChristy, and add that there are a whole lot of months in between 13 and 24 months for your feelings to change about it or Delaney may decide to self-wean.

Be gentle with sounds like it's been a pretty trying few weeks without the additional pressure...


Ooh, I can relate. I have an almost 13 month old who may be on the verge of weaning, too close to call. I'd like to sleep undisturbed for more than three hours and my husband wants the privacy of our bed back. The baby, however, seems to have his own agenda and weaning doesn't appear to be on it. I will miss it terribly when the time comes.


hi! i'm alive :) so, i nursed the boy until he was 2 1/2 years old and he weaned himself beautifully. i'm not so sure the girl will be as easy. what i'm trying to say is that you really have to look at it from the standpoint of your child's temperament. don't be scared to keep going if you feel like that's right for you and vice versa. of course, that's what you were saying, but i wanted to let you know i went that long with the boy and it was no problem at all to wean. funny thing is, he doesn't remember nursing at all. he was stunned when he found out the girl wouldn't be taking milk from a bottle!!
