How do I get him Off my Boob?

My son is 1yr old and I still breastfeed him. He just started going to daycare so I dont breastfeed him as much and my milk has dwindled but he still try's to suck the life out of me. Then when nothing comes out he gets me. I find myself saying sorry to my 1yr old. I know its a comfort thing. I've tried stopping but I find him staring at my chest all the time and pulling my shirt down. What do I do?

  • pump while at work and keep nursing. Doesn't sound like he's ready to be done yet. i worked full-time with my youngestin daycare, and most states have laws proptecting BFing moms who work

  • I weaned my son @13 months..he only nursed at night at that point so I gave him a sippy cup one night he didnt like it so I waited a couple days then did it again and he took it..slept through the night for the first time too lol so I would wean him totally or start pumping to get more milk in..its up to you!! maybe if you decide to wean him find something else that comforts him at night
