He is now BRINGING me the boppy!

I was having some success weaning my 14mo old until last week when he got sick and wanted to do nothing but nurse. Now we are back at it full swing. He has started bringing me the boppy! He looks all happy and giggly when he does it too! I don't want to refuse him, but I feel like it's worse than when we started weaning! What do I do???

i don't really know (that's really cute, btw). maybe just cuddle and read a book instead? distract, distract, distract is my advice. can you put the boppy away where he can't see/reach it?

get rid of the boppy?

snuggle on the boppy and read?

I don't know your situation but I PERSONALLY would keep nursing, but fi you don't than I think re-purposing the boppy or hiding it are great options.

Re: He is now BRINGING me the boppy!

Ditto what the other mamas have said. If you are ready to be finished bfeeding, then put the Boppy away and let the distraction begin. If he associates it with nursing and you are trying to wean, then it will forever be an obstacle. If you just want to introduce the idea of weaning, you could then repurpose it for snuggling and reading while still using it for nursing.
