Has anyone weaned according to the signs? The Farmer's Almanac lists the best days to wean each month based on astrology. I just heard about this from a friend of mine, her mom and grandma swear by it. Just curious if anyone else has heard of or believes in this? The Almanac also tells you the best days to potty train...

No idea, i've never heard of this.

I wean based on my childs "signs" like after 2 the child choosing to slowly over time reduce the frequency and duration of nursing until they are done.

Potty Training is also one of those things i let the kiddos show me when they are ready not some silly book.

Interesting.  I plant according to the almanac but that's it.  I probably wouldn't wean based off of it - I wonder how they determine that?

I garden according to the almanac, but haven't done anything else by it. Weaning went very easy with my first. We were both ready. Now I kind of want to look back at the signs and see if it was "in the stars" so to speak. Lol
