Weaning stories?

My DS will be turning 3 soon, and I'm ready to wean. I've been painting on clove oil (bc it tastes gross) on my boobs to prevent him from wanting to nurse. When I had DS, I said to myself that if I was still BF-ing him at 6 months, that would be a miracle in itself. Lo and behold, nearly 3 yrs after I said that, I'm still BF-ing.Originally, I was going to let him self wean but, I'm done; he wakes up a few times at night to nurse but I can't fall back asleep. What's your weaning story?

Delay and distract. Stop one nursing per week until all done.
For night weaning, look up Dr. Jay Gordon's night weaning.
