I wanted to know if anyone has any advice for weaning a 22 month old boy. I nurse him once when he wakes up, once before his afternoon nap, and once before bed time. he also still wakes up most nights in the middle of the night to nurse. I realize that it is a habit and i am trying really hard to get him to break it! When i say no to him he gets really really upset and cries and cries. But i don't give in and then he stays awake for awhile cuz he finds it hard to put himself to sleep. i guess the one when he first wakes up would be the easiest to stop first. And he already drinks tons of homo milk as well, he finishes a 1 L in about 4 to 5 days. I have been nursing him since the day he was born and I hope to be atleast down to only the nighttime feeding by 24 months.
Any advice or suggestions? Thank you
