I have had two m/c's while nursing (second one today) and I decided that it is time for me to wean DS. My luteal phase is short (9-10 days) and it's just not conducive to getting/staying pregnant. I believe nursing is what is causing such a short luteal phase.
My DS will be 3 in January and I am honestly ready to wean anyway. I already cut way down on his nursings after my first m/c. He mainly only nurses to go to sleep (nap and bedtime) and then when he wakes in the morning. I think I can easily cut out the morning nursing.
What I need help with though is - how the heck do I get him to go to sleep without nursing when that is what he has done for the past 2 years and 8 months? I thought it would be easiest to transition if my DH would start a new bedtime routine with my DS because if I am around, he just wants to nurse. But honestly, although my DH says he will help, when it comes down to it, he doesn't want to put in the time/effort it would take to set up a new bedtime routine with DS. He will try for like 15 minutes and then say it won't work and DS needs me. Or he'll just want to drive DS around in the car until he falls asleep, and I definitely don't want that to be our new bedtime routine.
So any suggestions or help you could give me for me to get him to sleep without nursing (and a minimum of tears) would be greatly appreciated.
