So ds was pretty happy about saying he would be done nursing when he was 4 (which is in July). I am now 13 weeks pg and it was starting to HURT so bad. We've been gradually weaning for about 5 weeks now. It has be somewhat pushed by the pain I was in. I never refused but certainly encouraged he nurse less or only on one side. We were down to once a day and then recently down to once a day on only one side (my super milk producing side, didn't seem to hurt as much).
Dh has been bribing ds to stop, but ds has been "sneaking" nursies with me. Ds has actually been okay about even the sneaking, even giggling about tricking daddy and not being teary or sad about it. This was really important to me, I didn't want weaning to be a sad thing.
So no nursies today and ds said he's done. I'm relieved in a way, but still sad to see this part of our relationship come to an end. We are still enjoying our morning snuggles together which helps.
