weaning a 2 yr old. (piog)

Ok so my ds just turned two, he was eating more solids. So we thought ya natural weaning. But now he is back to refusing food and only wanting breastmilk, I didnt want to cut him off cold turkey, but may have to.


The problem is he nurses to sleep, and has a severe Nut allergy, cant have anything that mght just have traces. He is missing his 4 top front teeth due to an accident and him breaking them, so he has a hard time eating. I know at his age he needs solids, my older boys went through this at this age and I just gave them pedia sures and uncrustables. Not an option this time with the allergy, and his refusal of cows milk.

So please any tips anything? Or is it cut off time and hope for the best.

Thanks in advance.

This is not a breastfeeding debate, this is my last child, and only one I breastfed. I did formula before, lot easier to cut that out. Just feel bad going cold turkey because I know hes going to cry a lot.

Not sure maybe start limiting the times of nursing and just keep introducing different foods

Did you try giving him breastmilk in a sippy.. Feed him soft solids that's easy for him to eat with a cup of breastmilk.

I tried and he says he doesnt like it, maybe due to temperature change? I even tried chocolate milk, he spit it out. He'll eat bannanas , and some harder solids. I wish he could et his false fronts alreay but dentist said not till 3.

If he is a picky eater it's better to still be nursing to give him everything he needs than to give it up and have to resort to Pediasure, which is full of sugar. Your breastmilk supplies a lot of nutrition even for toddlers. I would try to find foods he WILL eat and give him a lot of that. For some kids it isn't a behavior thing that can just be fixed by taking away nursing.

Yeah most kids that are nursing won't touch breastmilk in a cup. It's a whole different thing.
