I will start by saying I'm ready to wean my ds. He is still on the fence about it. Some days he says he is almost ready (a promised day at in indoor play area to celebrate has been encouraging). I know he has had milk for long enough that I should feel no guilt about weaning, my little man will be 5 this summer.
I have been tandem nursing him and little sister for over two years. A couple of months ago nursing them at the same time became unbearable. It started making me feel horrible, like want to peal my children off horrible. So now I nurse them separately. This in its self is upsetting enough for both of them.
Sorry for the long background. My real question is with a child this age has anyone gently encouraged a weaning date to work toward? Like maybe a count down calendar. Keep in mind this child still nurses 2-3x a day and would more if I let him I so wanted to let him self wean, but do not think I can make it much longer without going crazy.
