Hi Y'all, maybe I should be putting this on the BF thread..but here goes.
I want to stop breast feeding as I feel this is a good time to quit...
I have done two weeks of night weaning and with success my DD2 sleeps through now untill 5am, she wakes up wanting boob and then she will sleep for another two hours. I have tryed this morning to try and not give her a feed but she wont have any of it...maybe I have to persist like I have done for the last two weeks...
I really would like to stop BF as I've had enough. I feel like I have been BF for nearly 3 years now with DD1 before..I feel pregnant whilst BF DD1.
DD1 would wake up at 5am and not go back to sleep but DD2 is so more chilled out and needs more sleep.
So has anyone had the same experience...DD2 refuses the bottle or cup at this ungodly hour....Maybe I should just bring her into bed and cuddle her till she falls back asleep...any tips would be greatly appriciated.

You're only doing one bf a day? The 5am one? I would just stick with it if I were you. Dropping that feed may create more stress than it's worth. How old is she?

No I BF 3-4 times a day sometimes just twice...But your maybe right..
