Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I want to say that there are perfectly good reasons for weaning your child, and the only one who is able to judge the validity of these reasons, is you, the nursing mom.

I do want to say that if you consider weaning your child, think about it carefully, because once it's done, going back will be nearly impossible, and there's only this short span in your child's life where you will be able to have this close physical relationship. You might grow to miss it.
Ask yourself why you want to wean. Is it societal pressure? Is it fatigue?
Is weaning truly the only option?
Maybe you are just being a little impatient. You might want your fertility to come back fast.
Maybe you lack support and you should seek a community to help you deal with your problems.
Maybe yoou just need a good chat. Call up an old friend, maybe go out together, grab a meal.
Maybe only partial weaning will help you achieve your goals.
Before you wean, consider if your child is ready to take this step. Will weaning be in the best interest of the both of you?
And if after all these considerations, you still find that weaning is the only option, wean him gently.
