My son will be turning 14 mos. at the end of this month & I am still BFing. We are down to about 3 feedings a day when he is getting ready to go to sleep. I was told the same thing by my pediatrician as Mel, that my baby doesn't need to nurse at night & that if he awakes, he is to try & put himself back to sleep. I wanted to try & ween him b/c I have to other children & I am currently in nursing school. My son does not take a sippy cup & I was told that it was too late to try to get him to take a bottle so I don't know what to do at this point b/c I don't have anything to substitute his feedings with. He does eat big people's food for all of his meals, so anyone who can offer some advice, please help. Also my son will not take whole milk from me so I need any kind of help I can get.
