Did you wean cold-turkey, but stick around for company and cuddles?
Please tell me how it went. Methinks I'm going to do it tomorrow night. DS is 2 1/2. We've been talking about weaning for a while. He's only been nursing at night (and lately most of the night = no sleep = argh!!!!) for a few months. He talks all day about how he's a big boy and isn't going to drink mommy's milk anymore, nono. But come bedtime it's "Me not a big boy! Me a little boy! Boob time!"
I am ready to wean (his sister had just weaned at this age), and, especially, ready to SLEEP. Also trying to wean him from the unintended cosleep situation of me ending up in his bed all night! We deliberately coslept for a long time. But now he shares a room with his sister and I'm ready for that to be his nighttime companionship. (They're in bunk beds. She is 6 1/2 and on top.)
The dude needs to sleep!!! Me too !!!!!!!!!!

PS: When I cut him off daytime nursing it was cold turkey and it went fine...although that does seem to be when his nighttime sleep got worse. Sigh.
