So, I'm not sure if this is too premature to speak of, but I think Iris may have weaned. She hasn't even asked to nurse since we got to Wisconsin. I am excited about this particularily because, A)I was feeling ready for her to wean, and B)In my heart I didn't want to force her, I wanted her to wean herself. I think she may have. We are doing the "don't offer/don't refuse" method although in the past few months I have re-directed Iris's requests a handful of times when I just couldn't muster up a nursing session. She didn't ever seem to mind.

Anyways, if she really is weaned, it's so exciting. What a milestone. We'll see what happens over the next few weeks before I start writing any lengthy memoirs on the subject, but I just wanted to share this!


  1. Maybe it's something in the water...
    It sounds like you're feeling much more positive about it than I was with the Kidlet.

  2. Oh exciting, has it still been nursing-free? That's how it should end, on such a gentle, everyone is happy note. I just hope I can last until then!
