Normal but maybe offer to nurse. I know around that age I had to remind my LOs to nurse.

It can takes years for your milk to dry up.

Unlikely that your milk died up in 4 days! Keep offering. 14 months is a bit early for self-weaning. Is he getting bottles? Is he teething?

There seems like there is no milk. I hand express and just little bit comes out. He now likes his milk in a sippy cup. His doctor didn't seem concerned that he wanted to stop. Guess every kid is different :)

It is not a concern from a medical point of view. However, if you wanted to continue you could do it by not offering the sippy and offering the breast. The fact that you can't express milk is pretty normal at this point and it means nothing. Maybe I can express a few drops and my dd is a 21 months old boobie monster.

Fourteen months is early for self weaning. Up until now he didn't need cups of anything other than water. You could stop giving the drinks and see if he asks again, or you could offer.
Personally I offered until ds was 18 months old.

First bit of good news.. expression tells you NOTHING about how much milk is there. 

Next bit... toddlers can be "too busy" and then go back to newborn frequency.
