I am a mom of two brilliant boys and have breastfed them both, I had no trouble with my first son when the time came to stop breastfeeding at 21 months. My second son had his 2nd birthday last week and I now want to stop breastfeeding.
The problem is he has very different ideas, he is most certainly not ready, but I feel that enough is enough. We have massive tantrums throughout the day if I refuse the breast and at night we spend most of the night awake with him screeming the house down until I give in. I still have a good milk supply, and he will take cows milk from a cup, but I think it is about comfort, that I am his dummy.
I did ask my doctor for help or advise but he just looked at me with disgust at the fact I was still breastfeeding him at this age, and gave me no help at all. Any advise????
