    unexpectedly sad

    Over the last few weeks, my 17 month old son has not been falling asleep during the last nursing session we've been hanging on to; i.e. the one right before bed. Last night, after he finished...

    dropping the last feed??

    We are down to one session (my boy is almost 17 months now) and I'd like to do the final weaning. I am definitely ready, but the little red-haired boy loves his booby. If I offered it in the day,...

    2 steps forward, 1 step back

    So I wrote an earlier post about how well the Dr. Jay Gordon night weaning method worked for us and then we went on vacation....

    Now we're right back where we started. Rather than wake everyone...

    Re: Dr. Jay Gordon method-it works!!!

    Thanks to the pp for bringing up that Dr. Jay gordon only recommends his method for babies over 1 year old or older.

    Re: Dr. Jay Gordon method-it works!!!

    I did feel bad when my boy scooted over to my chest. It seemed somewhat of a tease to have the goods in front of him. So I tried to cover my chest with a comforter. Then I scooted down so I was...

    Re: pressure to stop nursing my toddler

    My son and I are down to nursing just before bedtime (and during the night, of course! sigh) and I just don't tell anyone. My boy is 13 nearly 14 months and he needs me to fall asleep. I guess...

    Re: night weaning, but still co-sleeping?

    I think he sucks mostly just for comfort at this point, b/c I don't feel a let-down and he rolls over and falls asleep immediately after nursing. He doesn't nurse for long, I think he just...

    Re: Confused

    I think the standard line is that you do breastmilk first and then snacks until your baby is a year old.
    However, in reality, I did the opposite toward the end of my boy's first year, at least in...

    I was wondering the same thing. My son has the same problem. I tried soy, but he's not crazy about it. Hopefully someone responds to you, because I'm curious about it too!

    Re: Co-Sleeping

    When people would come over and ask "how are you feeling?" or "aren't you exhausted?" I would always reply "no! I feel great! I roll over, feed him and fall back asleep-it's great!":)

    and then,...

    I am still nursing my boy 2-3xs a night, which is okay, and I know those will probably be the last to go.

    I don't think cow's milk is evil either!
    I just gave my 1 year old some milk for the first time on Sunday and he didn't disappear in a ball of flames from hell, so I think it must be okay! :p

    I've waited until my boy is a year to wean-precisely so I can substitute cow's milk, or soy or whatever. I think any earlier is probably not recommended-or maybe you would have to substitute...

    embarassing nipple question
