As your baby or toddler gets older, weaning is inevitable. As a result, you may be on the look out for early signs of self-weaning, thinking that the end is nearing. Although it's totally normal for babies to self-wean, Baby Center noted that each child will want to wean at different ages, however inevitable it may be. The article also stated that it's rare for babies to self-wean before age one, so "early" signs will be a relative term as well.
Whether you're ready to have your body back to yourself or are reluctant to end your time breastfeeding, your baby may have a different plan in mind for breastfeeding than you do. Letting your child take the lead on their path to weaning is usually the smoothest and healthiest route to go, as forced weaning usually backfires.
If your baby suddenly has as aversion to nursing, don't assume they're weaning just yet. According to La Leche League International (LLLI), when you choose to go the "baby led weaning" route, it will likely take weeks or months for your baby to wean fully.
Be patient with your baby as they start showing the following signs of weaning, enjoying even the frustrating moments, because they won't last forever.
