Then.... He weaned himself. Suddenly. Abruptly. Thoroughly. Thursday and Friday he nursed his usual 8-10 times daily. Friday night he flat out REFUSED to nurse. The end. I knew he would be ok if I gradually weaned him. I did NOT expect him to suddenly go cold turkey. I did manage to coax him to nurse a tiny bit so it wouldn't seem so abrupt - two and a half times in two and a half days.
Mama is sad. She misses her baby.
And Mama is extremely glad. That was the easiest weaning I could ever imagine.
