Weaning not going well-26 mth old
I have been working at reducing my 26 mth old nursing times and its gone fairly well except at bedtime. I am 17 weeks pg and getting tired of nursing so much. When I got pg, I eliminated 2 sessions that didn't seem that important to her, leaving us with morning, lunch and bedtime. The morning and bedtime she has shortened the length on her own and they are maybe 5 min, 10 at most. Bedtime is another story, she would nurse forever. I started limiting her to 25 min, and then recently 20 but she cried so much we went back to 25 min. Now even that is not enough and my dh has to come retrieve her after 30 min while she is screaming and I escape. I am really not feeling up to nursing that long at night and I just don't know what to do. There is hardly any milk (hasn't been for some time) so I don't think its a food issue. Before I got pg, she wasonly nursing maybe 15 min at bedtime anyway. I'm not refusing to nurse her and 20 min certainly seems reasonable (to me anyway) so what should I do? It feels horrible to send her off my my husband while she is screaming every night. Please help!!
