My 14MO son is still wakes thru the night, we co-slp and recently(2wks) wants the breast for atleast an hour before he wakes in the morning and does not sleep/nap without it(ever!)... i realise that he has a sleep association with the breast and I've been ok with this, I am a stay at home mom and have decided attachment parenting is the method for me, dispite it being very high demand. I figured I would wean him around age 2 and hopefully by then he would be sleeping thru the night and weaning wouldn't be so hard. BUT now Im 2months pregnant and his frequent waking and has me worried!! How will I cope with 2 waking children!! I am getting comments about weaning him...just the thought of it makes me tearful. I loved B/F and feel very guilty about weaning him as it seems he still very much needs the breast. I have read about tandem B/F and although it seems tempting & daunting, Im thinking of just weaning him. I dont feel ready though but i have no family or support as my husband and I have moved from abroad so i guess i ahve to start thinking logically instead of emotionally. Am i weird for taking this so seriously? and how do i even begin to wean him if its just the two of us all day long?!!
