I need to wean my 3 and a 1/2 year old son and am wondering what your experience is mamas with weaning at this age and what you did....whether it is easier to stop with a celebration party of sorts or do it gradually...whether one is "better" than the other. My sense is gradual weaning will lead to constant battles as he is still very attached to weaning. As I said in an earlier post, he is excited about his "big boy" party after he stops, but I don't think he actually wants to or is ready to give it up...we only nurse at bedtime at night, a lot first thing in the AM, and sometimes during the day (sometimes not). I would deeply appreciate any tips on how to best wean him, how to talk to him, etc. and hear some more about your experiences. Thanks so much.
