I'm lucky that my daughter is still very interested in titty at 10 and a half months, and i will be sad when she decides she's had enough. I know my mum felt that way with my little brother. She was ok about weaning my older brother and i, we were on cups of cow's milk by 12 months, but my little brother came along 9 years later, and he was 21 months old when mum sat down on the chair ready to feed him and he said "No more titty, Mummy" and that was it. She didn't know that the night before that was going to be the last night. She was really upset, and cried for a few nights following that at his feed time. I know that Hannah will be an only child, and am happy that she will continue being breastfed for some time to come.
