I am at the end of my patience with my 4 yr 2 mo old and his extreme attachment to breastfeeding. I feel like I should have weaned him when my milk dried up during pregnancy. I have been tandeming for 9.5 months and my health is suffering because as much as I try to limit him he is extremely persistant. I haven't even been successful nightweaning him, we all cosleep because he is has some developmental challenges and won't sleep by himself, and when I refuse to nurse him he cries so in order to save all our sleep (I'm already sleep deprived from the baby nursing) I just give in. How do you wean a child gradually if they are so persistant and nagging you all the time about it? Today I feel like my milk supply is low and he is complaining he is thirsty but he won't drink anything! I feel like we're spiraling downwards, he needs to eat more and drink more, but would rather nurse. He knows I will give in to him so he just waits. I am completely afraid that weaning him cold turkey will cause such emotional and psychical turmoil for him that I won't be able to do it! This is not how I wanted our breastfeeding relationship to end! Smack some sense in to me that weaning is not going to destory him or me and we'll get through it!
