When I was pregnant, I always said that I would breastfeed until 6 months. I didn't have a clue about babies, and I thought that at 6 months they just magically started eating baby food. Well then I learned better and I decided that I would bf for the full year. I told my husband that it made no sense for me to put him on formula. DH was fine with that decision. Well now my baby is almost 10 months. I look at him and realize that I only have 2 months until my "deadline." DH has even decided how we will go about weaning him. He wants me to start now by night weaning. He says that my LO is to old to be waking up at night. He has even suggested giving him a bottle of formula before bed so that he will sleep through the night.
I know that parenting is a two person job, but I just don't think that me or my LO will be ready in 2 months. I'm not saying that I will continue nursing him until he self-weans, but I'm not ready to put a deadline on how long I will nurse. My husband thinks once he can walk around he is too old. His exact words were "I don't like that, its not right." I've done the research, and I've learned that it is right.
My question is... Did anyone else go through this? How did you handle it? I don't like the conflict and I know that it is going to be a problem.
