My baby will be 12 months old in 10 days. I am not ready to stop breastfeeding and had planned on nursing him until he's at least 2. HOWEVER, he has different plans. When I try to nurse him, he doesn't want to!! I certainly do not make him. I just offer and get him into position. He has just lost interest. I'm really surprised but understand he's growing and just has more "important" things to do these days. Lol. My breasts are full and hurting though. Do I just let them hurt a few days and let my supply diminish? I'm hoping he'll continue to at least nurse at night for the next year or so . . . Would appreciate advice from anyone to allowed baby to self wean. . . And I do plan to continue to offer breastfeeding as he wants. . .
