    It's so rough when they're sick. Do whatever you need to to get through. I've started to accept that the process of weaning a toddler is a bit of a two steps forward, one step back dance. Definitely give the cup of milk a try! My win last night was that dd slept through until 4am and then asked for a milk cup straight away! She didn't even ask to bf! 😮😊

    My little girl (14 months) is also boob obsessed and I have to wean her by July so I can start IVF again. Thanks for all the fab suggestions! And congrats to everyone who has BF for so long! 👍
    I'm glad you've found us! @Tiny Dancer started a fabulous thread here. I'm starting to think of it as the toddler weaning room! I hope the advice here proves as helpful to you as it has for me.

    Maybe we should rename the thread. I like it!

    I'm sure a mod could do it? Make it easier for fellow mothers of boob addicts to find us!

    Hi guys, I have re-named this thread but not entirely sure if I named it correctly, if it's not the title you wanted, please let me know.

    Ooh thanks for the name change - I hadn't seen this thread before but it just caught my eye as we're in this camp too!
    DS turns 2 in 6 weeks and feeds 3-5 times a day (before bed, around sunrise, after daycare, and a bit more here and there on weekends). It's weird to be now trying to work out how to stop feeding when we had such a huge battle to get breastfeeding established way back at the start!

    I currently don't offer but wait for him to ask, and distract/delay if possible. He's quite non-vocal but one of the few things he clearly says is "Beeboo? Mama, beeboo?" (trying to say boobie!). It's frickin adorable and makes it very hard to say no!

    Anyway, will be following along for more stories and advice!

    Welcome aboard @deku! I know what you mean about it being weird to have try to work out how to stop bf after trying so hard to get started. The idea of trying to wean never even occurred to me. I just thought babies magically self weaned somewhere around 1! I really should have known better given I had plenty of family around feeding toddlers.

    Anyway, we've survived another night with no feeds here! Dd was pretty restless though and I couldn't get her back to sleep at all after 5am. For those who are attempting night weaning, or have a plan for how they're going to attempt night weaning, do you have any suggestions for ways to resettle when it's that close to morning?

    Well....

    In our house sunrise or dawn was the start of our day when we weaned. So I got up, took my baby to a brightly lit room and fed her there. Then we did breakfast 30-60min later.

    Over time that became later and later.

    Exactly the same here with all 4 kids. I know when I wean the mornings start early but not forever. It's not something I love but it's a trade off I accept until the baby learns to stretch out their sleep as they know there is no feed coming.
