DS turned 1 today, yippee! I had always planned on weaning at 1, but I thought he would naturally be decreasing his nursing sessions by now and it hasn't worked out that way so much. So now I am planning on trying to cut out one nursing session every 2 weeks. He usually drinks cow's milk at daycare during the week, but he spits it out when I try to give it to him at home. DH and my parents can give it to him if I'm not around and he sucks it down just fine, but when he sees me he wants boob. How do I cope with weekends when he will want to nurse all day? Any advice or stories? How did you deal with this?
d'oh! Looks like we're the only ones in here. This weekend was actually ok. We kept pretty busy. He actually took some cow's milk from me on Saturday when we were at my cousin's house for his birthday. I made myself scarce a lot on Sunday. Each day is different. How is it going for you?
I have been trying to give him some milk here and there to see if he will take it. But it is still the same. I am with him 90% of the time and he really isn't interested in taking anything from me. I am going to start giving him cows milk for his breakfast bottle this week and keep transitioning him one by one until we are weaned.
I hope you continue to have good luck with him transitioning.
I went through this too and like you I just made myself scarce. DH took him outside or took him to play downstairs or in another room from me. Or I took our older son somewhere and left DS2 with DH. It only took about a week and he didn't want to nurse. Just have to get them into a different routine. Keeping busy also helps, going someplace (park, mall, friend's house) really helped too.
