Q.

weaning 10month old

My 10month old son is gnawing at my nipples, please advise on how to wean him off his night feeds. It's strenuos as it is painful, because he sucks more for comfort if anything especially at night. I understand the nutrific benefits, but it is honestly no longer a pleasant experience for me. Both our sleeps are disturbed if he loses grip of my nipple at night and refuses a dummy. However, if I am not in the room, he sleeps with his dad with nearly no fuss having had a bottle and the occasional pat when his sleep breaks. He is on formula and only has breast when im home after work, exclusively weekends etc.
