I have asked my local leader about this and she sugessted posting my problem here. My son is now 4 yrs old and has been weaned since April '05. He was down to only nursing at night to go to sleep. I had read ALL of the weaning books. I was three months pregnant with our 2nd child and had very little milk left and considerable pain. One night my husband (who is more pro bf than I am) said enough was enough (since my son and I were both crying). That was the end of our bf. He seemed to adapt pretty well and only asked a couple of times but was easily distracted. I had deceided not to tandem nurse. To complicate problems we were having work done on our house and were living with my mother in law for 5 months. My daughter was born in September and several times now my son has burst into tears saying how he misses nursing and how it was his special thing. I even let him try to nurse again but he has forgotten how. I stay with him every night till he falls asleep and try to have special days just for him. How can I help him through this? Shouldn't he be accepting the end of bf by now? I am afraid I have somehow messed up. I just want my happy boy back. Do we need professional help? I would love to hear from anyone who has gone through this and had a happy ending.
