yes, 13 years, not 13 months (more than one child though ): Guardian article.

I hadn't realised it was such an old thread. She's probably stopped now.

I think the title must have just caught my eye somehow - seems it was me that un-earthed it nelly. Still it may have helped a couple of people and been of interest to a couple more ?

TryDubai, DS1 was around 2.5 when I was at the same stage of pregnancy with DS2, and he actually self-weaned (with a bit of a nudge) very easily - milk supply tends to drop in the second trimester and he obviously wasn't getting much, so his time on the boob at bedtime was dropping anyway, then one evening I suggested that maybe he had "drunk all the milk", he said "yes, I drank it ALL" and never really asked for it again! Very painless for all concerned. He's now very interested in DS2 having his milk but has shown no interest in it for him, if you know what I mean, other than "I had that when I was a baby".
