I don't know that I really have a question, I just kind of want to vent. I am going to have to go to a 6 week class soon, probably in October in Alabama. I really need to wean Levi by then, maybe not completely, but I need to cut out most of his nursing sessions. I am willing to pump a couple times a day when I'm there, and I might still nurse him when I get back if he still wants to.
The problem is he still nurses practically every hour of the day, and a few times at night. It doesn't help that we've been moving and I have been available 24/7 for nursing. He is eating little in the way of solids too.
I don't even know where to start with weaning him. I think we're going to start with night weaning when we move into our new place. I am going to sleep in our spare bedroom and DH is going to sleep with him. DH seems to think that as long as I am not in the room that he will be able to comfort him back to sleep if he wakes up. I have my doubts. Maybe he's right though.
As far as cutting out other sessions I have already started to say no to him when he seems like he is nursing out of boredom but it doesn't go well. It ends up being a complete fit. It doesn't help that we are living in a hotel room, so I think he's bored a lot.
I have very mixed feelings about weaning him. On one hand, I feel bad about having to end it this way. I know he is not going to be happy. At the same time, I am feeling DONE nursing him 20 times a day, or what seems like it. I don't think I would feel like that if he were nursing 4 or even 6 or even 8 times a day, but it's just too much right now.
