I am ready, what do I do???

My son is 28 mo and still nurses ALOT. I would say 6-8 times a day not including night nursing. Latley he has become quite impatient and demanding when it comes to his milk and I am getting frustrated.
I want to wean him gently but with his "tude" latley I don't know if it would be Dh and I are ttc and I am kind of hoping that ds will just decide to stop when I get pg but what if that does not happen? I don't want to be tired w/ mornign sickness and frustrated with nursing too

I don't know about other mamas, but i didn't get pregnant until after weaning. We were ttc for a few months, ds weaned, and bam it happened. May just be my body, tho.

Could you work in extra snuggle time in place of a few of those nursings?

Good luck with weaning AND ttc!

You can just say, "mama's milk is broken" and tell him that there isnt anymore in there for him. Give him a cup, and just hope that he is ok w/ it!

I nursed Andrew for 16 mos then weaned him to a bottle. He dumped his bottle on my laptop, so I grabbed it and said "no more for you! bottle is all gone!" and that was that. He looked at me like "wuuuuhhhhh?" but I gave him a cup and it was all good.
