Stopping Breastfeeding Cold Turkey 1 year old

Just going to bite the bullet. Hoping it won't be too traumatic. He is so good with my helper. Totally manipulating me. If he's doing this now imagine when he's 5! Time to take control. He will be a happier baby of he sleeps better

Yeah... don't do it cold turkey. It will be extremely difficult on both of you.
As exhausting as it is... he is perfectly normal. You can try to set limits and enlist some night time help, but if you can wait him out... he WILL outgrow this (perhaps w/ some encouraging from you) when he is ready.
I started trying to gently night wean my son at 18 months... and it took until he was 2 before he was ready, but he's slept through the night (w/ rare exception) ever since. He has taken longer to reach certain 'emotional' milestones than many in society would find 'acceptable'... but he's doing it on HIS timeline and I guarantee he's doing it. ♥
