Kai might be the last baby we have and I had always regretted weaning Ian so early. In my naivety I thought it would be me to initiate that step towards independence (for both of us), and my thought was that it would be around two. Out of desperation, and exhaustion I gave Kai a bottle of rice milk, it worked like a charm, he fell asleep with in minutes, however I am paying the price; he won't nurse anymore. I guess it's just like everything else with kids, the goal is to teach them to be these self sufficient little people, but it's kind of like working yourself out of a job.
