Re: weaning by end of September?
Is he teething? Mine has needed to nurse all. the. time. through molars and canines. He also nurses a lot right before a spate of new words and sentences. You might want to wait it out a bit before initiating weaning because nursing my wane a bit on its own.
I do think that getting out of the house and having lots of activities going helps distract from nursing some too.
You've got a few months yet, so don't get too despondent right now. Just work on distracting him from one session right now. It may take some time, but you two will find a way to make this work.
