Ok, So dispite all my family input, I am on my very last baby, Who will be two in March and it's very quickly approaching. I have kept the breastfeeding going and was really hoping he would self ween. He seems to have been BF more now a days then the previous months. I am ready for it to be over, It's nice to have the bonding time, But he's actually out wearing the welcome asking for "boob" when I'm pushing him in the cart at the store to in the middle of a wedding, And I'm slightly embarrassed to be feeding an almost 2 yr old in front of other. So the thing is, I just don't know how to go about denying it !! I really tried to cut out night time feedings and that stopped for awhile, but since we co sleep, I'm sort of at his request. It always falls back into play after we kick it a few weeks. Is cold turkey best when you have a very attached momma's boy ?! I do not work and I am his only care taker, Other then my husband no one watches him and he is constintly with me. I am dreading this, Yet I am ready ! Any help would be appreciated. He also does not eat food. He will snack on grapes, yogurt and cheese, and eat a few bites of what I have, but is not interested in meals and I feel like nursing him is his main nutrition. Which I am sure he would eat more if nursing less. Help !!
He is my third, unexpected world. After having two at a younger age, he was a surprise that must be the best mistake in my life so I just don't want to upset him !!
