My 14 month old son has been exclusively breastfed from the beginning we ever took the bottle or pacifier no matter which ones i bought or how I made it. We have co-slept from the beginning and he has never slept through the night without waking to breastfeed. I am done with breastfeeding, it's starting to make me feel claustrophobic and annoyed, and I think it's me and hubbys sleeping movements which are waking him. so this weekend I am going to put him in his own toddler bed (right beside ours) and give him a sippy cup instead of breastfeeding. This will be the first time I will have EVER denied him the boob and I am anticipating a tantrum and a half. but I intend to make it fun for him (hopefully) and help him feel secure in whatever way i can. If everyone could please give me advice in any way you feel, I am already dealing with allot of adults in my life telling me that a 14 month old should not be breastfeeding anymore and I'm scared I might be stopping just because of embarrasment, even though I know I am going to miss the whole experiance. I am very worried he will be stronger than me and wil refuse to stop bf and I will give in because I really dont actually want to stop but hubby is tired of sharing the bed. thank you for any advise or support given thanks you all.
