How does weaning happen? It's supposed to be a natural process but it feels anything but. Many cultures breastfeed well past toddlerhood, although it's almost unheard of to find a child past 3 or so nursing in this country.
Is it an attachment/security issue? I try to see if there's a parallel in the animal kingdom. A human infant with "high needs" might breastfeed longer because he needs to, and a maturing tiger cub could get a swat or be refused at his next attempt for getting too rambunctious.
So do we omit the middle of the night feeding first? Or the morning I-just want-to-stay-in-bed-for-5-more-minutes one? What about the
myolderbrotherwontsharehistoyandIjustwantsomeonetoholdme nursie? Tough choice. We're weaning every day, and someday we won't ever nurse again.

Googlefight is fun. I was playing it with my son and putting in silly words and names trying to get a zero zero match. Finally we arrived at this: baby bop's mystical cave vs. barney's lickable castle . There, in theory, now that I've referenced it, it won't be a zero any longer since Google will index this page sooner or later (unless there's some anti LJ indexing feature i'm unaware of, which is entirely possible.) I figure if enough people post their Googlefight zeroes, the web will be so filled up with nonsense we can bring this bloody thing to a standstill!
OK maybe not, but it's still fun to try...
