Re: Conflicted and needs advice!!!
Oh gosh, I think a mom who has been so generous as to nurse 3x a night for nearly 2 years should feel absolutely free to night-wean, especially if night-weaning gives her the strength to continue to nurse during the day!
Are you weaning completely, or just stopping the night feedings? If you're simply cutting out 3 feedings, I think you're unlikely to experience more than a little temporary discomfort. If you're weaning completely, dropping more than 3 feedings at once, you probably need to slow down a little or you're risking engorgement, plugged ducts, etc.
Mother-led weaning can be difficult on a kid. But I doubt he'll feel neglected. Confused and upset, sure. But probably not neglected.
