You will definitely have to wean slowly. Look at your day carefully and see if their are times when he always nurses. Then cut out just one feed. Still breastfeed at all the other times. I personally chose to cut out over night feeds first. I had to sleep train by letting my daughter cry in her crib while I comforted her with my voice and rubbing her back.

I started weaning at night at 10 months and didnt stop her last feed right before bed till she was 17 months. It was a long process but it worked for us.

Good luck!
