Please Help, I need, absolutely must stop myself breastfeeding my 17 months old baby boy. He absolutely loves breastfeeding. The problem is with me when he asks I cant resist. Is there anything I can do that would stop him asking? Or stop myself first to stop him breatsfeeding? Many thanx for your advice!

I'm not sure what the problem is? There's nothing wrong with him wanting to nurse and you obliging.

I'm not sure that I understand your situation/question. Why is it that you must wean him? Do you need him to stop nursing completely or just nurse less times during the day? If he loves breastfeeding you need to let him nurse. It's the best thing you can do for his health and emotional stability. If you were to cut him off and force him to stop it wouldnt be good for either of you. Certainly there are some reasons that you may need to stop but if you can be more specific about the situation maybe I can be of better help :)
