My little man if officially weaned. It wasn't my choice... it was his.
We came home from vacation and he had just decided that he had enough of it. I nursed less on vacation than normal and I think that probably did us in. When we got home he went back to nursing 2-3 times a day for a week or so. But then he made it official. For two days straight he refused to nurse. He was taking a bottle so we don't think it was ears or teeth or pain. I think he was just ready.
I tried to keep at it but he was done. I had to bite the bullet and be done. So he is completely weaned and seems very happy about it. I was very, very sad at first since I was shooting for closer to two. The nice thing is that there was no long drawn out process. He didn't fight it. It was just over. Just like that. And that's good.
Doesn't mean I don't miss the snuggles, the excuse to have a nice sit a few times a day, the bonding time... I complained but I loved it.
I am still calling it a success. Almost 16 months is probably better than most. It wasn't easy but it was so worth it.
