Hi all I'm new LLL I wish I would have come a crossed this website at the beginning of BFing I had a really really hard time bfing for 8 weeks (MAJOY latch and supply issues) but I was determined I was going to bf and I did it! The past 18 months have been some of the hardest and most amazing times with my little man. So I am thinking of starting to wean my LO he is 18mo and my husband and I are ready to get serious about having another one and I need to lose some weight before we have #2. My LO only nurses when he goes to sleep at this point. So I nurse on average of twice a day in the afternoon and at bedtime. Since he doesn't nurse very much how do I wean him without going cold turkey? I don't think I have that much milk left and I am totally dried up on one side so he only nurses on one side. So my questions are:
1. How do you wean when your LO does't nurse very often already? at the most 2times a day only at nap and bedtime.
2. My LO refuses to drink milk I have tried and tried and he just spits it out should I keep nursing until he likes milk to make sure he gets what he needs?
I am having a hard time thinking about weaning. I am worried about how that will affect my sons and my relationship and how it will affect his sleeping. Any advise about all of the above would be appreciated! Sorry to be long winded!
