We have a 21 month old boy suffering from lot of allergies, so weaning was the last thing on my mind. But he would nurse 5-6 times a night and sleep was hard to come by.
So it has been a week, I told him that I am hurt in the breasts and cannot feed him. He was sad the first day, gave me hugs and kisses, did not cry, and after 2 days he does not ask anymore.
He wakes up once around 2am, but goes back to sleep immediately with some patting or his favorite song.
I still feed him at 5.30am, and will be letting that go too. This transition is so hard I feel like a part of me is ending. But he is happy and this has been with no tears or protests so far!
Hope this helps someone!
