EBF for 10 months! But I need advice on how to start weaning him off! Hates formula full stop, throws the bottle and walks over to me to BF himself. Only bottle he likes is his water bottle.

Hi there! We've been EBF for 8 months, and I'm trying to figure out if/when to night wean. He's a energetic little guy, so he's often moving a ton and easily distracted during day feeds. I feel like he eats more at night since he's calm and half asleep. However, at 8 months he's still eating around 3-4 times a night... And I've heard that by this age they should be dropping night feedings. Any advice?

Setareh, good luck with this! When my son was 8m, I was finally ready to night wean. I wasn’t ready to let it go before then. One suggestion that I was given by a sleep consultant was to have someone other than yourself tend to the baby when they wake so they know they won’t be getting milk. Also, do your best not to offer it if you go to the baby at night. There were many times I had to succumb to his desire to nurse at night so don’t worry if it takes a while. Nighttime change is hard for both of you. I think the other tip was trying to unlatch asap if you had to nurse at night. They eventually may get used to having less and need it less and stop asking for it

I feed her every time she shows a sign of hunger but how do you know if she is getting enough . I only can pump maybe 30ml on a good day .
