first question.....child led weaning happens by when? I ask because I havean 18 month old who is a booby monster and still barely eats food at all.......takes soy formula also....anyway she wont go to sleep by herself and now is soooo demanding for boob....pull my shirt, grabs my boob has temper tantrums if i wont give it to her ect....and wakes and nurses all night long and basically asaults me in bed at night lol! I think it is time to wean but it breaks my heart......i do not want to break hers:( but she needs me to look after all of her and not just our BF relationship now,,,,she needs to sleep! so when does it happen by her doing and how do I do it myself?

Would it be an option to do nighttime weaning but still nurse during the day? When you say she hardly eats any food at all, what do you mean? How is her weight gain? Is she on the formula because of weight issues?

FWIW, child led weaning typically happens between 2 and 6.

Here's my experience FWIW.

My DD was still nursing a lot at night and I was a zombie.
