  • He is probably not ready. That being said, if YOU are ready for it to happen, I would suggest a gentle approach. Try the "don't offer, don't refuse" tactic for a bit. Don't suggest or offer the breast, but don't refuse.

    If that doesn't cut down on the amount of feedings, start just holding him while he drinks from a cup. Also, try to get him to nurse just when going to sleep.

    I'm working on weaning my son as well, but he'll be three soon. It's tough when they're addicts. lol Good luck!
