Hello! I am a 25 year old working mother and am still breastfeeding both my 1 year old son and my soon to be 4 year old daughter. I have tried to wean my daughter since she was 2 years old by sending her to her grandmother for about 3 weeks hoping when she'll come back she wouldnt need breastmilk anymore. Since the arrival of my son, she has increased the number of times she breastfeeeds so I breastfeed them both at the same time..They are both healthy kids but it just drains the energy out of me. By the time they're done..I am totally exhausted!..I have told my daughter numerous times that she'll be going to school soon and that she should stop breastfeeding coz she's a big girl now. But she gets all emotional and starts crying saying that she doesnt wanna go to school if it means she wont have breastmilk anymore. What should I do???....She has to have breastmilk before she sleeps. The worse time is when she wakes up at around 4 in the morning looking for me coz she wants breastmilk..


Please..I really need to wean her before she starts school next year...
