I posted this in the Breastfeeding Moms community, but to me, BF and AP and co-sleeping go hand in hand together, and I would greatly appreciate your input.
My son Noah is 19 months old and has been breastfed all along. For the last 5-6 months, we have just nursed at night - mostly in the evening/falling asleep and waking hours. I have to stop nursing because I have to start taking medication on Thursday that he cannot ingest. This is not how I intended to "wean," but I have no choice. My son loves his nursey time and will be sad. I too am heartbroken, as it has been such a bonding experience. What can I do to make this easier on him? Advice on alternatives to nursing greatly appreciated! BF'ing is such a big part of being a mom... I want to make sure that I can make it up to him in some way....
