Please help! Need to ween at 2.5 years for health reasons...

Hello everyone!

My boob obsessed, co-sleeping 2.5 year old needs to be weaned . It's almost certain that I have Lyme disease and the Chinese herbs I need to take as well as the detoxing are prohibited with breastfeeding.
I have no idea where to even start. She nurses quite a bit during the day and I nurse her down for naps and before bed. To make things more complicated I would like to start trying for a second in the not too distant future as I will be 40 this year and that bio clock's ticking away!
Is there a thread on here with advice, or a book or website anyone recommends? It's stressing me out to have to actively wean her but I need to take care of my health.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I have not used it myself but Pinky McKay 'Weaning with love' is a very good resource.

I don't know

if this will be of any help, but I managed to cut back on going to bed nursing by having my hubby put my son to bed, as nursing simply wasn't an option with him. The reason I wanted it to end was that my son wasn't nursing really, or going to sleep and he would wake up prettily easily if I moved him.
