Weaning

Dear Clover,123 years ago

I am trying to wean my 18 month-old from the breast. My method is no nursing during the day, I feed him table food, and he drinks water or juice. I don't nurse him to sleep for naps or bedtime. So far so good. The problem is he wakes up at 3 am and again at 5 am to nurse. I'm a sleepwalking zombie. If I don't nurse him, he starts to wake himself (and the whole family) up by crying, kicking and, and screaming. HELP!

Advice

Dear Sleepless Mom,122 years ago

I didn't know much about breastfeeding when I had my own child, and when my daughter had her child, I knew even less. However, I did find an excellent web-site that gives fantastic advice, and my daughter started using it as her resource. Check it out, and I hope it helps in some way. Stop back and update us by posting what you tried, and what did or didn't work. Your advice will certainly help someone else. Thanks for bringing up the subject.
