    ds is still fed to sleep, i've only left him once at bed time and he was a baby, idk what he'd do if i wasnt there.

    currently feeling very over it, at 21 months ds is nursing 1 - 1.5 hourly over night and it's draining me, i loath nursing so much at the moment but he and i are not ready to ween.

    tried night weening but he just screams and screams, he wont take anything else in the night

    Yep, DS is still having one or two feeds overnight but the night weaning was more stressful and exhausting than feeding as he screamed to high heaven and took ages to settle too. So I'm just going with it (for now).

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I'm feeling a lot more comfortable planning a night out now.

    My DD is almost 13 months and we are going strong. I am genuinely surprised i've made it here.

    Generally she has 3 feeds a day, and might wake for one overnight. We have just started introducing goats milk/formula for daycare days as cows milk seems to give her a sore bum and tummy.

    So for us!

    Well... we have weaned! +

    After 19.5 months it was a fairly painless end. We had been down to a bedtime feed and still one or two feeds overnight to help with DS's night waking. Then over Easter weekend he decided he wasn't interested in a bedtime feed anymore. Then we went away for a week and he forgot about BFing altogether! Since we got home, he asked for boobies once (in the middle of the night) but I told him they don't have any more milk left and he accepted that and went back to sleep.

    I have some mixed feelings about this change in my relationship with my son, but mostly I feel really proud of BFing for this long, and really happy that I went with my instincts and let him wean at his own pace (and didn't listen to all the people who suggested that if I didn't wean him he'll still be BFing when he goes to school!!)

    So I guess for now, I'm out of this thread. I'd like to thank you all for the support and encouragement I've received from this group of amazing mummies. And good luck with your BFing journeys from here

    Electric boogaloo that's fantastic, sounds very stress-free.

    After being bitten (very hard) 3 times tonight i'm totally ready to wean. I just don't know how!

    Hi ladies! Congrats Electric Boogaloo.
    Ouch! Majestic Hiss. I'm lucky, so far DS only has 4 top teeth and hasn't bit me for ages. It does feel different feeding him tho.

    DS is almost 13 months and I'm so happy we made it past 12 months. I was so ignorant about bfing when I was pregnant and only planned to for a few months.

    Thankfully no one has really commented on my still feeding DS which is a surprise considering the comments I was getting a few months ago.

    I'm hoping DS night weans soon but I doubt it. I'm so over getting up at night but he screams the house down if DH goes near him at night.

    Anyway, I hope to be a part of this thread for awhile yet. It's the only time DS stops and feels like my baby again. He's getting too grown up!

    DS is 28months and doesn't seem to excited about weaning. So at the moment he's starting to get cows milk in a bottle.
    He drank almost 400mls tonight! No blooming wonder I'm eating more when he ups the feeds!

    Congratulations Electric boogaloo on a fantastic job! Glad it was a painless weaning experience for both of you too.

    I'm out of this thread too DD has self-weaned, a couple of weeks before her 2nd birthday. She had been doing just morning and night for ages, then started not wanting one here and there, then it became a few days between feeds. Now it has been 10 days since her last feed. I'm almost 18 weeeks pregnant too so that has probably sped up the process.

    During her last feed she pulled off, said 'mmm, it's yummy!' and went back to feeding. So cute. And a very nice last feed moment.

    It'll be interesting to see if she gets interested again once the baby comes.

    I'm having some success with introducing cows milk. He now asks for milk sometimes instead of boobie.
    Still asks for boob sometimes though.
