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.

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?
