I just can't continue on the way we are and really need help weaning my 13.5 month old. I'm not sleeping much at all because LO is up all night nursing. I'm trying to cut down the time in each session but she gets so upset if I unlatch her. It's to the point that I don't want to be touched at night even for my husband to rub my back. I feel like for my own sanity, I really need to wean LO. I am just not happy bfing anymore.
Currently she nurses when she goes down for naps (once or twice a day) and she nurses to sleep and throughout the night which is every hour or so. We co-sleep. Some days she will nurse once or twice during the day (in addition to naps) when she isn't feeling as well, like when teething. She is up and down with eating solids. I'm trying to get her to eat finger foods but she's not usually that interested. So I give her something to feed herself each meal (toast, fruit, whatever we are eating) and I spoon feed her something (yogurt, oatmeal, avocado, applesauce, pureed sweet potatoes, etc). She'll usually feed herself a few bites then play with it the rest of the time. She usually eats the spoon fed food but sometimes refuses that. I don't force her to eat anything. If she shakes her head no, I don't push it. She doesn't really like cow's milk so I haven't been giving her any since she's bfing so much. I give her a sippy with water throughout the day but she doesn't really drink much. But I really don't know what would be a normal amount for her.
I know this is a long post but I felt it might help to see what her meal and nursing habits are like. Any input into where I can make changes to this to help wean her to solids would be so appreciate! I just don't know where to go from here but I know that a change is needed. Thanks ladies!
