I have searched and searched the forums, but really, everyone has different circumstances from mine. My little guy is 13 months old. He has never taken a bottle or paci and just recently started to use a sippy cup with whole milk during the day. He does not nurse or really even try to during the day but night time is another story. We cosleep and he is up every hour to comfort nurse during the night. I have tried to give him a paci, but he won't have it. He screams and screams. I need to wean him for medical reasons.
I just don't know what to do. It is so heartbreaking. I hate to see him in such distress.
My Dr asked me to start my medication in 1 week from yesterday. So last night was the first night I really tried to just hold him and sing to him when he awoke to eat. He screamed for what seemed like forever. Eventually I gave in and nursed him in the middle of the night once and then again very early in the morning. This is a big change from every hour, but he did fight even that with all he had. I want to do this as gently as possible, but also as quickly... any advice would be greatly appreciated by both myself and my little guy
