My son will be three years old in March and is still breastfeeding.
He is VERY persistent, and I’m having trouble weaning him.
The advice from family and friends (who think I should have cut him off a long time ago) and from the pediatrician is to make him quit cold turkey.
I fear that he might perceive it as abandonment if I forced him to suddenly stop something he loves so much, but I have no other ideas about what to do.
Does anyone have any experience weaning a [very demanding] toddler in a nurturing way?
