I really wanted to follow my daughter’s lead when it came to weaning mostly because baby-led weaning
with Isaac was so lovely, and I hoped for a similar experience with Gillian. Of course, no two children are alike and, as Gillian and I made it past 21 months (when our son self-weaned), then 2 years... then 2.5 years... then potty trained
in a day... well, I dreaded that without a little encouragement that she’d be asking for breastmilk right after asking for the car keys. I found the bigger she got the less I enjoyed breastfeeding and I really wanted our last nursing days to be happy memories for both of us. A weekend away at Blissdom provided our family with a deadline to work towards.
