I need some help weaning my DS by 3 years old. I love our feeding relationship, but it's time to stop. It upsets DH and everyone else who still knows we feed.
Feeding for 3 years is one year longer than I said I would so it's time to stop. I have 3 months to wean him. He is on 3 feeds a day- 2 if he doesn't do a day sleep. We are cutting out the day sleep now as he doesn't sleep without feeding down. I've tried for months to cut the wake up feed- but his days when we manage it are awful. Whining tantrums and clingy ness all day. He also feeds before bed at night. If he doesn't sleep during the day he's do tired he feeds to sleep. If he's had a sleep he feeds, then lays down with me until he sleeps. Usually about 30 mins. If I feed him on waking he sometimes sleeps a little longer which doesn't help as it encourages me to feed as he wakes between 4.45 and 5.15 every morning (anyone who's been here a while knows how crappy a sleeper ds is- so it's been hard to stop feeding for that reason too)
Can anyone give me some advice or suggestions? We are also TTC again- so weaning will help there too.
