I've already cut down his feeds to just at night and first thing in the morning, and the only reason I can manage to avoid day time feeds is because I work, so I'm not around to give him milk. I'm not expressing at work, so I hope my supply just goes down but he is so clingy at home and when we lie together in bed he scratches at my chest and whinges. If I don't give him boob, then he will start crying. And at night its the only way to settle him back to sleep.
He still doesnt sleep through which i know has a lot to do with the breast feeding, and we are trying to book into a tresillian day stay to help us teach him to settle..
We are also TTC and finding that the BF is hindering this.. Any advice to make the weaning easier would be greatly appreciated.
Just to summarise: I usually feed him about once in the evening when I get home, then once before bed (but if he doesnt fall asleep right away I will give him another feed about an hour later), then he wakes up at night anywhere between 2-4 times and I feed him each time. Then once in the morning when he wakes. He doesnt have full feeds all the time, sometimes just a comfort suckle..
Last thing: at his age, am I supposed to be replacing the breast milk with something else? He eats cheese and yoghurt during the day..
