    I went through this twice between 10.5 months and 12 months but was due to him being sick and not being able to breath. We went almost 5 days without a feed he would refuse then I offered and bam he was back on.
    I have cut the feeds down as I'm also pregnant and I think my supply had dropped but don't lose hope just keep offering and with time you will see if he is truly off or just a phase. At least if he is weaning it's his choice you aren't forcing him or making him cry for it. That's what I kept telling myself
    . Hugs I know it's hard emotionally and hard not to feel rejected

    Thanks so much for the encouragement. I can't believe how upset I feel that this is/could be the end of breastfeeding for us. Very tearful day!
    I'm going to try a few more suggestions tomorrow - including the switcheroo
    Thanks again

    Hi all.
    No change here. I have offered but it's like he's forgotten that he ever used to breastfeed. He was unsettled in the night a couple of days ago and I offered the boob. He latched for about 5 seconds then clamped down
    I've managed to pump about 400mls a day in a couple of sessions and he's having milk in a sippy and also on his cereal! He is a great little eater and is even eating more food in the last week and loving it.
    I'm feeling a lot more philosophical about the end of feeding now and thinking perhaps the baby knows more than I do! I need to put some weight on - doctor's orders - and that's going to be much easier when I can add dairy back into my diet. Doctor has also put me on supplements for low iron etc which has again made me think it's time to stop.
    I'd like to keep up the pumping for a couple of weeks - until LO's birthday - then I plan to reward myself with some cheese and a glass of wine.
    I have loved breast feeding and feel so lucky I was able to for this long. Thanks for all your support and good luck to anyone in the same position. It sounds like they do come back sometimes

    Sorry to hear he hasn't gone back but well don't for still pumping
    It's good that you can focus on yourself for the time being, enjoy the cheese
