Hi, I have a 16 1/2 month old and I just found out I am pregnant with number 2! I am still breastfeeding. I have already been trying to wean and over the past 4 months have got it down to nursing down to his morning and afternoon naps, nursing down to sleep for the night and one feeding in the middle of the night (for the most part). He is VERY much a comfort nurser. BUT I am SO ready to be done. I have been, but now that I am pregnant again I am even more desperate to be done. I would love a little break before the new baby arrives for one, and now my nipples are starting to become sore.
I have tried giving him sippy cups of warmed Almond or coconut milk (dairy allergy) and he will casually drink it before bedtime, but once it's time to go down to sleep, he wants 'na na' and that's final. I have also tried getting him attatched to stuffed animals or a blankie, but no avail.
Any suggestions on a good weaning book or any tips on what the next step should be in the weaning process?
