Has anyone heard of a baby weaning themselves?? I swear my baby has been super determined from day one not to breast feed!!! It was a long road of attempting to BF,dealing Breast "avertion"

I know babies often wean themselves from the breast, but didn't know that could happen when you pump, I mean at least not till they are 2 or something:) my son drinks less milk on some days then others, but in general he really loves his milk ( he's 13 months old). He doesn't normally take less then 30 oz's a day. But I think drinking less then that is pretty common, as long as he eats well and drinks water. You could still pump for a littler while and see if he changes his mind about weaning:) or if you have so much frozen milk you could retire and feed him frozen and start giving cow's milk too. It is totally up to you. We didn't start cow's milk yet, because I make enough for him to eat and the freeze some at 3 pumps.
