We're still happily bf at 14 months and will continue untill dd wants to stop. When i work she is happy to just bf in the evening and night. During school hols while im home she bfs about 4 times in the day and a few times through the night (still cosleeping).
When does your dc bf and how often? Any experiences of babies stopping bf on their own and at what age?
Thanks. I'll have a look at these links. 7 years! Hopefully she'll self-wean a little before then I think the night feeds are my only issue (if any). I'd like to get my bed back but can't bare the thought of waking up and getting out of bed so cosleeping is easier at the moment. Thanks for your reply.
We night weaned at 13 months using Dr jay Gordon's method. I'm on my phone so can't link but google him and his blog will come up; it's very gentle and can be effective for babies after 12 months, and they'll still feeding up on waking and going to bed
I am still bf dc3 at 15 months (stopped bf dc1 and dc2 at 13/14 months). He has bm in the morning (not always on waking, dependent on school/preschool run etc!) and before bed. Has had norovirus this week so bf on demand.
16 months over here. On working days she has BM in the morning and before she goes to bed. Sometimes she will ask for it as soon as we get home so then it's three in total.
On days that she's with me it's a bit more.
She nightweaned herself a while ago now and it was a gradual process. I think it was when she started to go really big on food and was so full up that she didn't want it anymore in the night. And she eats an unbelievable amount. I know there are a lot of threads on here about their DC not eating but I am on the flip side and worry that she eats too much!
Like Happygirl77, a little while ago, DD had a tummy bug and just wanted BM. I actually was nostalgic when changing her nappies. BM nappies!!!
Yuk to bm nappies! . Good to know there are a few about still bf. I hope dd stops the nightfeeds soon then i can think about finally moving her into her own cot. Think she needs to eat more first though.
