okay, so my goal is to have DS weaned by the time he's 2. He's 18 months right now. We started with only nursing for naps and bed(and overnight) and he got used to that in about 2 weeks. That was pretty easy. I just distracted him through those typical nursing times. Now, I'd like for him to go down for a nap without nursing. It worked yesterday, but not today. He just got panicked and wouldn't go to sleep. So, we are skipping the nap today apparently. I figure if he gets tired enough, he'll figure out a way to get to sleep without me I tried to rock him, lay next to him, etc, and he just wouldn't have it. I feel like I'm going slow with this, but what do you all think? I love nursing, but I want to be done with it more..I just had to weigh my feelings, and my love for nursing does not overpower my wish to be done, and move on. I get so tired of the pinching, hitting, and fidgeting that goes along with it. That and I want to have him weaned before we try for another one. And lately, nursing him to sleep hasn't been working all that well. It seems the only time it works is overnight, when he's already asleep. We cosleep, so that is going to be the last thing to go, I'm thinking. Suggestions, tips, insight?
