Any ideas on how to ween my 19 month old son off the the breast and out of my bed?

    Take a weekend away trip if you can! That age they will self wean pretty easy if they don’t have access :)

    The hardest ones are just before bed and in the morning. For a week my boyfriend out her to bed instead of me so that she wasn't trying to nurse. When she woke up in the middle of the night, I would pick her up and rock her back to sleep instead of nursing her. In the morning, instead of nursing her right away I would take her downstairs for breakfast immediately. Anytime she wanted to nurse it was a matter of redirecting her with cool toys and activities. I nursed her until 15mo and it took 9 days to wean her.

    It might be easier to do one at a time. Kids don’t like when a lot of things change at once. Maybe pick the one that he might ween off of easier and start there.
