"I mean, everyone would say, it's time, it's time, come on," she says. "I started to stop a little bit, weaning and all that, and I'm like, Why am I doing this? If I'm happy and he's happy. So I said, Let me see when he asks me for it—which is like, he doesn't talk, just pulling at my shirt a little. So I said, Let me see, and he only asked once a night. So I did it and he just stopped. I'm like, I just want to do what he wants."

Now that Mason is a bottle-and-sippy-cup guy, does she experience physical withdrawals? "I do. It's really sad," Kourtney admits. "I'm like, it's over. But I don't know...whatever is meant to be."

More incentive for baby No. 2, right, Kourt? "We'll see," she teases.
