How did you wean your baby from the boob?

He is 10 months old and still nurses to fall asleep. I am done with this. I never had to wean my 2 year old he got the roto virus and didn't want to eat for 3 days so i never offered it again and he never asked. Please help me out this kid has got to start falling asleep on his own.

  • I would say just let him cry... i sound awful.. i know. Do you pump at all? Maybe pump a bottle,and give it to him before bed, but try and make him stay awake, and then put him in bed awake or drowsy and he'll be okay..

  • i just staerted giving him bottles and he started to get the hang of the bottle. so i tricked him and started giving him formula. so when he wanted the boob i just let him cry so he had no choice but to take it. then again he wasnt picky

  • he won't take a bottle and never has he drinks from a sippy but the kind with a straw so he can't drink it laying down

  • i just rock my DD to sleep. we also nurse, and at times she wants to nurse to sleep. instead i pop her passie in her mouth and rock her while patting her bootie, when she falls asleep i lay her in her crib.

    at times she scream's the first few mins. of me rocking her if she really wants to nurse...i just sing to her and cuddle her a little more and it comforts her enough.

  • Your child is obviously not ready to wean. It sounds like you are a bit "touched out". If you take some time to yourself, it gives you a chance to revitalize yourself, and you may find that the baby is just wanting a little more mommy time (Not that you aren't giving's just that they need us sometimes more than what's normal)
