I hope you dont mind me posting this here but it looked pretty dead over on the weaning forum anyways

i want my almost 14 month old to wean. My other two kida i let selfwean and i am not doing that again...oldeat weaned at two and half and ds a little after three but he still asks for it anyways i need her weaned. I do not like it at all, i dont enjoy it and i feel like it makea my skin crawl when she is nursing. I do feel bad but i cant take it anymore...ive felt likethis the past month and half. I cant really describe the feeling when she is latched other than its a dreaded feeling and i very much cant stand it. i dont know how to wean her...i already am away at work a lot during the day and she wants it to fall asleep at night. I dont know if i hate it this bad because ive done it the past six yrs straight or what but this needa to end. The other night i couldnt take it anymore and let her scream in her room for almost an hour and the kid is so stubborn for it she would have screamed all night if id have left her there. Anyways any advice?? If i am around she has to nurse and as much as i love her and dont want to traumatize her i am regretting even nursing at all to begin with.Sry if typos, on phone

I'm sorry you're having a rough time! My daughter weaned very slowly, and not completely until 29 months, so I don't have a lot of personal experience, but because I love KellyMom.com so much, here is the link to some of their suggestions:

Good luck!

I can empathize. My little guy is 14 months and I'm ready to wean. More so because I have to be dairy - free and I'm tired of it! I also think my guy wakes at night just to nurse. The only thing I can think of is maybe have your husband start putting her to bed? It might be easier if he puts her to bed. It's easy to distract during the day but I know the night time is harder.

I can imagine being burned out after all these years of nursing. Wish I had some better advice! Hang in there!

She will take a sippy but I think its the comfort of nursing she is wanting so I am not sure what to do about that. She doesnt get the same from a sippy. Thanks for the link, I will deff check it out and yes, for sure burnt out by now, lol.

Dh has been working nights the past two months but his schedule is changing so he will be doing it. She goes straight to sleep for him during naptimes during the days.
