Weaning Updates

I have been weaning my 22-month old son from breastfeeding since last Wednesday.
Night 1 – He woke up 3-4 times during the night wanting to breastfeed. I lovingly told him that there is no more “dede” and he cried for 30 minutes the first time. The succeeding times he woke up, he cried for 10 minutes less. I had to carry him and rock him to sleep every time he woke up.

Night 2- He didnt wake up after sleeping at 9pm. The next time he woke up was at 5am.

Night 3- same as Night 2.

Night 4- same as Night 2.

Night 5- He woke up 2 times during the night. He wanted to drink milk and read books. But he was really sleepy. After a sip of milk and showing him I was reading a book, he fell asleep again.

Night 6- same as night 5. Though he woke up only once.

Noght 7- that’s tonight. I wonder if he will still wake up…

During daytime, sometimes, he still asks to feed but whenever I tell him there is no more “dede”, he stops asking… I guess a few more days or weeks and he will forget about it altogether. I just hope that he will continue sleeping through the night soon.

    Chris, you’re doing a great job. He will “get” it soon, and will start to sleep thru the night. My kids did the same thing at first. He’ll learn!
