I've had alot of neg pressure from people about breastfeeding my 18 month old. Pretty much ever since he was 4 or 5 months old others have tried to discourage it and tell me to wean. I dont understand something that is such a natural and normal thing with babies, some act like it is wierd! Now, especially since he's 18 mo old, there's more pressure. It makes it harder. You doubt yourself on what to do, when to wean! It does break my heart, the times I have, refused my baby the breast that he seems to want and need so much. It's just as hard for moms as it is babies. I kinda had wanted to try the self-led wean method but I wondered how long it could go. Personally, I really would like to have weaned before 2. Any suggestions....please help. Thanks!
