My son is almost 18 months, and I feel like I am doing the opposite of the "don't offer don't refuse". I always offer, even if he is not asking for it, as part of our routine. We still nurse 3x (morning, nap, and night). There are plenty of time when he says "down" (as in I want to get down), but I offer anyway, and he nurses.
If he didn't want to nurse, he wouldn't right? He's not pushing me away (like vegetables), but he is not asking for it either (rather I am the one offering). I am struggling with wondering if I am selfish and just not wanting to face the fact that he is not "a baby" anymore. Has anyone been through this? I have a feeling that weaning will be much harder for me than for him.
