My son is 15 months old and has been exclusively breastfed his entire life. I just found out I'm pregnant with my second child and have been told I need to wean my son. I never planned on weaning him this soon and if I wasnt pregnant I would nurse him till he weaned himself. He eats everything we do and drinks whole milk and juice from a cup so his nursing is basically for his own comfort and when he is tired. He doesn't sleep through the night and usually wakes two to three times to nurse and goes right back to sleep. I wish I could nurse him throughout my pregnancy but I had him 6 weeks early so I am at risk for pre term labor. I don't just want to make him quit cold turkey, but I honestly don't know how to wean him!!!! Any advice would help greatly!!!!!
