So,my ds is 2.5 now. And he is nursing alot less,finally. I guess in a way I am weaning him already cause I don't offer,but usually don't refuse,either,unless it's when he just wants to be latched on for hours at a time. I am ready to wean him. I said I would CLW,but I can't. I just can't keep doing this. I would like some advice on how to wean him as gently as possible. I don't expect it to happen overnight,but preferably in the next few months would be nice.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Here's his typical nursing pattern:<br>
nurse all night off and on (although lately he has been nursing ALOT less at night). He used to nurse before getting out of bed in the am,but stopped that on his own,with no pressure from me.<br><br>
Used to nurse to sleep for a nap,but we stopped naps cause he doesn't want to take them anymore.<br><br>
Will ask to nurse if we are home not really doing anything,but we have been trying to be more active during the day,so he's not really asking till late evening.<br><br>
Nurses to sleep for the night. Repeat above.<br><br>
So,all in all he's not nursing nearly half as much as he used to,but he does still ask,obviously,and I would like to know how to talk to him about it,or how to do the weaning in the least traumatic way possible.<br>
Anyone?

I highly recommend X-posting this in BFing beyond infancy. I think you'd get more help there. (Alot more mamas there nursing older ones...)

someone over there was posting about nightweaning and other people said that board isn't the place to talk about weaning? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I dunno where to post it,then,but I guess I'll x-post and see.

The CLW forum isn't the place to discuss weaning, but BFing beyond infancy is the perfect place. I figured this thread would get moved there so I wanted to suggest it 1st.<br>
Good luck!
