Really need some advice
I would really appreciate some advice on how to wean my 13 month old son off the breast.
I have fed him on demand since birth, and he is now really clingy towards me and constantly wants to feed for comfort. He also sleeps with me as its easier for me to feed him in the night this way, as I have a 3 year old and 4 year old who I have to get up to in the mornings to get ready for school. My other two were dream babies, feeding and eating brilliantly. But I never breastfed my first son, and my second son I only breastfed for 4 months, so I believe the breastfeeding is why he's so clingy and the reason for him not getting into a routine or sleeping in his own bed, as he wont settle on his own. I know its my own fault, as I've left it so late. He does drink from a beaker when eating, but he wont take it long enough. He's also not eating enough food as he always wants to feed, and when I say no he throws massive tantrums where he makes himself sick by sticking his fingers down his throat. Milk should be secondary to food now for him, but breast milk is still his main source and I'm worried that if I stop all together he will be getting even less nutrients that he should be getting from food.
I know that until I tackle the breastfeeding issue, I wont be able to sort out the other problems. I love my son so much, and I'm proud I breastfed him for so long, I jus never imagined that it would be this long. I really want a bit of my life back. Please help!
