I just weaned my son. It was very difficult because we was very attatched to me and would nurse not just when hungry or thirsty but also for comfort. I tried to wean him gradually but it didn't work. Finally, another mother told me all I needed was to get myself ready to not sleep for one full weekend, three days, and cut him off cold turkey but to make sure I was there to hold him and comfort him because he would cry for it a lot. I did it, and he hasn't wined not once to nurse since.
