It's time to wean...but how

I knew the end would come sooner or later. I'm ready...but he is not. He nurses mostly at night and it's been every 2 hours this past week. I know he doesn't need it....he "wants" it.

He'll be 2 in about 2 weeks.

I didn't think we'd make it one day.....and we've gone this long!

How do I do it? I know it won't be easy. I hope dh is prepared for the nights!

I hope someone can help. I have just started weaning my 17 mo old, and night is the problem. He can go all day not nursing, and go to bed without it, BUT when he waks up during the night it is on. He will scream, scratch, bite anything to get what he wants, BOOBS. I really am not sure what to do.

Anyone?

I work during the day, but nurse when I'm home/night.

It's really wearing on me.....we'll make 2 years, but not sure how long after that.

Re: It's time to wean...but how

Do you co-sleep? If so, I think night weaning is going to be a little more difficult. If you aren't co-sleeping, try to have your DH go to him and comfort him. If that's not an option, can you offer him a sippy cup of water and just rock him and give him comfort in another way?

Also try talking to him at night before bed and tell him that he can't nurse anymore during the night. Once before bed is all the milk you have and other times he will have to have water or a paci or whatever comfort item he likes.

It will probably be a long few nights, so I'd try it over the weekend when you're home and can rest if he is up a lot at night asking to nurse.

Good Luck!
