    I'm still bfing mine at 3. At 2 your ds should be able to understand simple requests. You can set boundries around bfing. Eg. If he wants it in the middle of the night you can say it's time to sleep now, you can have it when the sun comes up.

    Still bf at almost 3 but it's only the once before bed time.
    I don't think I could manage any more than that by now!
    I hope you ladies can find a strategy that helps with the over night nursing.

    I'm not feeding a 2 year old at the moment but I was last year. Have a search for a thread called "the toddler weaning room". It has some great tips about night weaning/cutting back bfs for a toddler.

    I did till 3.5yrs. I ended up just cutting feeds shorter and shorter by using a repetitive word day and night like 'finished now' and eventually he got it. Also slept facing away from him where possible so it wasn't as easy to access/smell. Took a few weeks tho. Good luck

    I'm still breastfeeding my 2yr old but trying to cut down as much as I can. Would love to get to just 1 feed at bed time. My problem is that I'm nearly 6 weeks pregnant with #2 and DD seems to find my milk irresistible since I got pregnant. I've just about got rid of all daytime feeds except for at nap time but from bedtime until morning its kinda a free for all. Hoping my milk supply drops off a little further into the pregnancy...

    It's tough. The only way I weaned DS1 was by falling pregnant and he was 2 years 8 months and I was 5 months pregnant. I think the taste changed and it was the only reason, I thought I'd still be feeding him in kindergarten.

    Do you co sleep? Or go in to feed? If you can, you could try sleeping apart or away for a few nights and get your partner to step in. Probably be a hard few nights but it's worked for mums I know.

    I cosleep with her and hubby sleeps separately (he snores and has apnea). She is starting to sleep most of the night with 1-2 wakeups most nights so I'm not too worried. I actually rouse her sometimes now because of my bloody pregnant bladder! I might just persevere until I'm a few months along and see if my milk changes to turn her off...I won't mind the odd feed once bubba is born because I think it might help them bond.
