    You mentioned he didn’t like cows milk, so what are you giving in place of
    breast milk?

    I love your view on breastfeeding. My baby couldn’t latch to my breast or
    to the nipple shield. I had to pump and ended up giving up. It was so
    uncomfortable when everyone I knew and even strangers would ask if I was
    nursing. I already felt like a failure and seeing their awkward expressions
    when I said no made things even worst. Anyways, long sob story from me lol!
    I just think everyone needs that kind of view 🙂

    I am 27 year old mom of 3. I have exclusively breastfed all 3 and still
    breastfeeding my youngest since she us only 7 months old. My middle weaned
    at 15 months old and my oldest was 20 months old. I had a similar
    experience to you with my first child in that I nursed him to sleep. That
    was such a hard habit to break and by that point I was so ready for my body
    back. He was only nursing to go to sleep at that point and it took a couple
    weeks of me giving in, etc. I just tried to cover myself and tire him out
    like you said and I told him milk was all gone and we stopped nursing. With
    my middle I learned a lot and knew not to make those same mistakes, it’s so
    easy to nurse a baby to sleep but it can be a hard habit to break, instead
    I’ve always rocked or cuddled my girls to bed. My experience with my second
    child weaning was such a breeze, she weaned herself with no issues and I’m
    hoping for a similar experience with this one when the time comes. It’s
    much easier when you don’t nurse to sleep!

    I am 22 years old and going on day 7 of weaning my 2 year old from
    breasfeeding on demand. He had his second day at school and I’m going my to
    school which is why it had to happen. Like you said us mothers give ourself
    a hard time before even trying. I was having anxiety over what I was going
    to do with a big boy that was so used to breastfeeding since the day he was
    born ( mind you my son has never ever had bottles or even any other milk)
    but the day I decided to start it was much easier than I thought. I would
    distract him every
    Time he asked and he never cried. And now that he is in school I’m
    obviously not there physically so that’s already a given distraction.
    Thanks for making this video. I enjoy watching mommies go though similar
    things as me

    I love your attitude when it comes to mothering.. very go with the flow but
    still educated and making smart choices that work for you and your family!
    I wish everyone felt this way!

    Yes! I can’t wait to wean my too. He is 13 months and loves the boob but
    I’m on the process right now, and will love when I have the freedom to
    leave him with my mom maybe even for a weekend to be with my husband.
    Please make a video about potty training if you have start it. Thanks

    My sister was forced to wean do to health problems but she had like 2wks to
    wean and every time her daughter pushe he boobs or sign of breastfeeding my
    sister would say NO SWEETIE then my niece started pointing at her boobs
    calling it no? No? So basically she called my sisters boobs noo it was so
    funny.

    I’d love a video about your cosleeping experience. My daughter is four
    months old and sleeps so much better next to me in bed. I’m torn on whether
    to let her stay in the bed or be more strict with her in her crib at night.
    How has cosleeping affected your sleep? Your relationship with your
    husband?

    I was the same way, thought that it will be so hard to stop BF but it was
    so easy. I did it gradually though, every baby is different so parents know
    what might work best, I just went with what made sense to me. I stopped
    when my son was 12 months and he hasn’t remembered about BF since then,
    happy with the cows milk. :)

    Lorraine, you are amazing!
    I had three babies and could only nurse for 6 months each and only 5 months
    for the third one. I just couldnt do it any longer!!! Kudos to you, GIRL!

    You should try giving him nido formula is really good it has all the
    vitamins they need and you just mix it with water.

    I’d love to hear your experience with Co-sleeping. My baby is 4 months and
    over the last few weeks we have found there are so many benefits to having
    her sleep with us….my favorite benefit is how cozy it is! 🙂 My husband
    is concerned that we are starting a bad habit and I know he is concerned
    about finding time for just the two of us. How do you guys make it work?

    My baby has been up so any times recently, sometimes she goes right back to
    sleep, sometimes she “parties” a bit on bed, I think it might be teething.
    When graham used to go to bed while nursing, did you just fall asleep with
    him at that time too? Or do you feed him and then get up again once he
    sleeps to do your own things, if so how did you prevent him from falling
    off the bed?

    I have four boys (6, 4, 2, and 6 months) all breastfed and they all (except
    the lil one) HATE cows milk – ive tried it all almond, soy, coconut – choco
    milk etc no luck
    but my boys loooove yogurt and cheese etc so my doctor said its fine
    it was just a struggle with cows milk!

  16. Becky Nelson March 22, 2015 at 5:41 pm #

    Could you have given him warm whole milk in a sippy cup right before bed?
    That’s how we weaned my girls from the bottle…

  17. spoonb16acrx2003 March 22, 2015 at 5:43 pm #

    Can you talk more about co-sleeping? Did Graham ever fall off the bed? How
    do you prevent it?

  18. voguee2 . March 22, 2015 at 6:33 pm #

    Just have to say that I think you are an AMAZING mom Lorraine. Graham is
    lucky to have you <3

    So extremely jealous! I’ve been breastfeeding for 16 months and i
    absolutely hate it! At least you have given me some hope

    THANK YOU!! I need someone to congratulate me for feeding my baby for the
    past 9 (formula) months and maybe until she’s 18, lol!!

    How can so many breastfeed for so long? Don’t you guys work? I see how it
    is possible if you are a stay at home mom. I have to go back to work when
    the baby is 11 months. Planning on breastfeeding until 6 months and then
    give babyfood and porridge. We have 12 months maternity leave, but 1 month
    is reserved for the dad.

  22. ashley t March 22, 2015 at 8:53 pm #

    Do you think you will breastfeed your next baby, or anything differently
    based on your experience?

  23. PrincessAlannaxx March 22, 2015 at 9:24 pm #

    Lorraine, your son is so beautiful! happy for you and your weaning success.
    <3

    Do you feel like you will start to wean him off of the co-sleeping or are
    you not concerned at all with that part? Does he nap in your bed as well?
