  • The problem is that you're cold turkey weaning. Drop ONE feeding per week, no faster. That will diminish your supply and he'll be more cooperative.

  • Ditto gdiamante. Make sure the last feedings you drop are the most important ones (usually nap and bedtime). Try the "no cry sleep solution" to help with the night time feedings. You could try just night weaning too instead of fully weaning. Offer a sippy with water instead of breast when they wake up. You may need to enlist DH the first couple nights so try it when he doesn't have to go to work in the morning. Kudos for making it this far nursing too!
