My son is 20 months and has been an avid breastfeeder the WHOLE time. He never took bottles, even with breastmilk in them. Luckily, I was a stay at home Mom for a year so it didn't take toll on me too much. He's getting to an age where I just think it's time to stop.. I keep telling myself, next month I'll stop, and the next month comes and goes. I'm putting my foot down at 2, but I'm having trouble weening (obviously). He has yet to sleep through the night because I have spoiled him into needing to feed to fall back asleep. I've tried to stop feedings at night and he just cries and cries and my husband and I can't get any sleep. I feel like it's easier to just feed him and get the sleep. I don't know what I need to do to make this easy for him, and help us sleep all night. Any advice?
