Weaning a 2.5yo from breastfeeding
My daughter is nearly 2.5yo and I am still breastfeeding her at night and at nap time, and once in awhile if she gets hurt for comfort. She really loves breastfeeding. She is my last child, and I have been glad to continue until now. But the frequency at night has increased to nearly all night (she is an extremely light sleeper), and I am waking up exhausted. So, I feel that it is time to wean. I have practiced gentle parenting with all three of my children, and am not an advocate for crying it out. I am wondering if anyone has successfully weaned an older child without CIO? If so, can you please share your process/experience?
Thanks so much!
