Hi I am currently 14 weeks pregnant and still breastfeeding my 22 month old. My goal before I was pregnant was to feed her until 2years and then wean her of the bit of feeding she is still doing. Well the breastfeeding started being really annoying at times because of the hormones I guess of the pregnancy my nipples are really tense. I kind of hoped she'd stop on her own because maybe the milk changed, but my daughter doesn't show any signs of stopping nursing...
She is currently nursing right after waking up, before nap time, before bed time and during the night if she wakes up, which can be up to 5-6 times during nights of teething.
She does drink regular milk from a cup for breakfast and sometimes during the day, and she also can fall asleep without nursing, but when she wakes up during the night I've actually never succeeded to put her back to sleep with anything else than nursing. This is going to be the hardest part I guess, and I still hope that those last 4 teeth will cut through quickly and the problem will somehow resolve itself...
My question, which feed should I cut out first? Any other soothing methods for a teething child in her sleep?
P.S.: I don't want to hear any comments that I just could keep her feeding and Tandem feed. I've considered it and I am not doing it! I am asking for weaning advise for a 2 year old. Thank you and appreciate it.
