(Night) weaning help
My son will be two next month, and is still nursing like a madman. Like 5-6 times a day, and at least that many times at night. I'm going nuts. We had been telling him both that when he was big he'd stop needing the boob, and that he'd start sleeping in his own room soon, and he decided to go with the sleeping in his room, which would be great, but since he's still nursing so much, I'm sleeping in his room with him, just so I don't have to get up 5 times.
Anyhow, i've got the pantley book, and was using some of those suggestions before he moved to his room, but none of it is working now, he has totally backslid. I also have the "nursing mother's guide to weaning" but they don't cover the night thing so well. I had "planned" on having him weaned by 2, but now if I can just get him night weaned, he can bloody well go on nursing for a few more months, if he'd just let me get some sleep.
I asked at an LLL meeting, and I got a lot of talk about how this one's kid night weaned at 33 months, and that one weaned halfay through pregnancy #2, which was NOT helpful.
Anyhow, I'm just hoping some of you innovative women have some great suggestions for me.
