My baby boy turned 1 on tuesday....and on wednesday refused the breast and has not nursed since. I have been offering it to him nonstop and he will either react by pushing me away or crying. He was EBF the first 6 months of his life, and still relying heavily on breastmilk up until thursday. He is otherwise well, nothing else going on. Hes eating and drinking plenty of food/water/milk I did try expressing some milk into a sippy (I dont even have a pump ugh) and he took a few sips then threw it. He seems incredibly young for self weaning, and it occured to suddenly I'm worried something is going on. Anyone experienced anything like this with their own babe ?
My kiddos always self wean at about 11.5 months so I think that is very normal.
My third self-weaned when she was 15 months old. Is he sleeping in his own bed? Transitioning her to her own bed is what seemed to initiate the self-weaning for her. My fifth will be 2 in 2 months and I am so ready for him to wean, he's still waking me up 2 or 3 times a night to nurse I'm over it.
This might help,
