My son has been nursing 20 months! My first two were only able to latch and nurse once and I could only pump 3.5 months both times.

I have decided to let him self wean. I just can't force him off I'd feel terrible and I love our special time.

His Dad is getting less supportive and really wants me to wean at two but I just don't care. After 2 I probably will avoid nursing away from home (other then in family members homes.) Luckily my sister is allowing her youngest to wean on her own as well (my niece is a month younger) so I have her support and my mother is pretty open minded.

I'm very grateful for this group for opening my mind and helping me to make THE best choice for both myself and my son:-)

Woohoo!
My dh was like that too, but we just kept on nursing :) He was pretty supportive.
We are going on 3 years now and dh is getting antsy again. I think guys just get a number in their head based on birthdays, but they get over it and accept it.
You just keep on and dh will come around (until the next birthday, but you can ignore it then too, lol). Nursing is a relationship between mom and baby.

Congratulations! That's awesome! My dd is 13 months and I have no plans to wean her anytime soon, either. My dh pretty much stays out of it, thankfully.
