Elijah just does not want to wean. I'm having a difficult time doing it... seems more difficult than with my first three (who weaned shortly after turning one). Any tips for weaning an older one-year-old?

I think they are probably more difficult to wean as they get older but I think the more he has other things to occupy himself and gets more independent, the easier it will be. He probably just loves his cuddle time with mommy

I agree... I think it gets more difficult with age... I didn't realize that before! I've tried just holding him and not breastfeeding and he cries a lot. I don't want to make him angry about it.

LOL, thank you.


He has a cold right now, but as soon as he is better, I'm really going to just have to hold firm, or he won't stop.

How is that cold? Any better I hope. One of my daughters that lives far away has an infection that turned into MRSA!!! Its been so hard for her to get better. My heart is wanting to be with her. Iwant to hold her so bad but my O.B. said, 'No way!" So hold Elijah and enjoy before he grows up. I miss that with my older babies so much

Elijah is just about over the cold... I'm just getting it! Sigh. He is still breastfeeding all night and trying to all day! I think my milk supply is dropping from the days where we are out all day (and not breastfeeding) so he does it for shorter times.
