I have been EBF my baby since he was 4 weeks old. I never thought I was going to make it this far, nor this was my goal either - didn't have any. Now I am expecting Baby No. 2 and due to my high risk pregnancy history, cerclage and bed rest, I need to wean him soon. I am 8 weeks now and only have 4-5 more weeks to go before I get the cerclage and he has to wean by then - no other options, sadly.
I don't even know where to start or have an idea on how to do this. I am heartbroken, but I have to. He nurses 1-2 a day for naps and 3-4 times at night since we cosleep. He doesn't drink any other milk but mine. I have tried different sippy cups with different milks. He only tries them and plays with them but nothing. BTW, is there any powder milk I should try?
I am with him ALL the time and my husbands works very late hours. No families around either to help with my situation.
Please tell me how you dealt with your emotions weaning your baby and how you handled it. I appreciate your responses.
