I'm a SAHM to two girls only 15 months apart. My first child I did not breastfeed and my second child has been exclusively breastfeed for the last 15 months and still going. I never intended to nurse more than 6 months but my daughter refused a bottle. She will drink from a sippy cup a little throughout the day, but she still prefers me over juice and solids. I wanted to wean her at a year old but i have been finding it difficult, not because I don't want to, but because I stay at home which makes me so easily accessible to her. It's not like taking a bottle away. I can make a bottle disappear, but not my body. So I have mostly been following the "don't offer, don't refuse" method but even with that she still want to nurse and pacify often. The only good thing is that she doesn't nurse for long. During the day she mostly snacks and wants me to be her pacifier. If we are home, she nurses to nap, but she will fall asleep without it if we are out. And she also nurses at night before bed. The most discouraging part is that she is still waking up during the night. She has proven she can sleep through the night several times but wakes a few times more often than not. I have tried self soothing, but that doesn't work for her so I continue to hold her and nurse for a few minutes to get her back to sleep. After all that said, I have been and still ready to wean, but I am finding it very difficult with how much she still prefers me over juice and solids. I try to get her to eat more solids throughout the day but she isn't a big eater. She will have a few bites of her meals and of course she nurses too. I'm wondering if she still wakes at night because she isn't getting her fill of solids throughout the day or is it just out of habit. Needless to say, I'm beyond sleep deprived and frustrated. I do enjoy nursing her 90% of the time and try to remember to appreciate the closeness while it last, I just never anticipated continuing this long and my daughter still wanting to nurse as well. I keep telling myself that by 18 months she'll be too busy wanting to play to prefer me but she has proven me wrong since day one so far...any advice towards weaning or helping her to sleep would be great! Thank you.
