weaning advice for 2 year old
I am still nursing my toddler who will be 2 in a month. She pretty much nurses at night to go to sleep, first thing in the morning and around noon (I would call it nap time but she rarely naps). However, she will also wake in the middle of the night yelling for milk. And sometimes throughout the day she will start having a fit asking for milk. I try not to give in but I feel awful. When I do give in I feel irritated, especially in the middle of the night when all I want to do is sleep. I don't mind nursing for a bit longer if it's just those 2 or 3 times a day but this is ridiculous to me. I am emotional at the thought of weaning completely but maybe that's what I should do? I know it would be a big disaster until the habit was broken. I can just see the tantrums and tears. Does anyone have any tips on making weaning less upsetting for both of us?
