She even weaned herself! I'm happy to report she hasn't nursed in four days, so I think we are officially weaned. It started when she turned one...she quit nursing for thirst. I was good about always offering her the sippy cup and she learned how to say "wa-wa" when she was thirsty and wanted water, so that made it easier.
Then she was only nursing to fall asleep...so maybe only 3 times a day! At night she got in the habit of sucking her thumb to fall asleep so she didn't nurse at night. Then during the day, I started laying her on her little dog bed in the living room and facing away from her pretending to go to sleep. Pretty soon she was falling asleep on her own without nursing!
It's bittersweet because I did enjoy nursing her, but now that she's older, has lots of teeth, and doesn't really need it, I felt it was time to move on, and so did she.
Lastly, my little big girl is finally sleeping in her room, in her crib! This is the first week we have done it, but it seems to be working better and better. She cries for a bit at first and then falls asleep for the whole night. She seems to sleep even better by herself. I'm so proud of her!
I am now dreading when the day comes and she starts school....it will be here before I know it.
