Thank you Khalam's Mum and Ali for responding. He is a real comfort sucker this little fella. I had in my mind that I would feed for 1 year and he will be 1 on Friday so whooop whooop!
I now think that I would like him to self-wean, when he is ready. Being honest I would hope this is within the next few months so that I get a little bit of a rest before the next little bubba arrives - is that selfish? Ali if my little fella loses interest like your little man did then I don't think I would offer him it because as you say it seems a natural way to wean and I would be really happy with this approach. I can't see this happening to be honest but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Interestingly (or perhaps not), my little man has fed every hour today, it's been draining to say the least. He is unwell (and on antibiotics at the moment) with a sore throat and ear infection but he has wanted boob constantly all day. He has been unwell since Wednesday so I'm surprised by his sudden desire to feed more now. Do you think this is the illness or my supply? My boobs feel soooo empty and I did begin to worry about my supply but given I'm only 3/4 weeks pg then it can't be low supply can it? Any advice?
WOW 2 years and tandem feeding - I take my hat off to you!
