About a month ago, I decided to cut down on some of my 24-month son's night nursing in an effort to gradually wean. (He nurses before and after his nap, before bed, and all though-out the night.) The next day, I came down with the worst mastitis and ended up feverish, delirious, in pain, and on an IV! As I was recovering, I had him nursing even more than usual because that helps the mastitis to go away. I am scared to moved forward with weaning for fear of having a similar outcome. I'd appreciate advise on ways to wean that avoid engorged breasts and mastitis. Weaning is so hard; my little boy just loves to nurse so much!
