Dd refuses to nurse for longer than 1-3 minutes, then jumps up and runs off. Sometimes its only long enough to lip smack my boob, look up n smile then take off. She drinks from cups regurly during the day. Milk, juice and water.

Dd is 16 months, very activ would rather be on the move than holding still to grab a drink. Her output seems lower than a few months ago, but she has increased solids in that time.

At night she will only nurse the easy milk, no hind milk. After a few minutes she switches sides. Tonight im pumping and going to give her a cup before bed and see how it goes.

Im open for suggestions, but still planning on pumping and night nursing for a while longer.

Does she sound ready to wean? Is she self weaning in her own way?

She started tge weanibg process once solids were introduced. It doesnt hurt to pump a bit extra for her if you want to give her more milk, but i wouldnt stress it. Just let her nurse when she wants and that may go on like this for months, even years. She want to start nursinf more at times and less at other times.
