Breastfeeding :: Weaning Off A Son 5 Years Old

So I am a breastfeeding mom. My son is 5 and 1/2 months old. I introduced formula for supplementation when he was about 4 and 1/2 months old. When I got pregnant I set a goal of exclusively breastfeeding for 6 months. I only introduced formula due to the fact that my son ate alllll the time and when I would pump I was barely getting an ounce. So he only got formula like before bedtime and when we we're out and about. Now when I pump i get like 5 ounces. Now I am trying to only breastfeed in the morning when he first wakes up and at bedtime. But the reason for this post is because I am trying to find ways to wean my son from breast feeding. I know that it's a process and I don't want to just take it away completely I enjoy the bonding time and the comfort I can give him from it.

Breastfeeding :: Painful In The Beginning

I'm asking Moms who breastfed more than one baby already. Is it as painful in the beginning the second time around? Or your boobs just get used to it?
It was pretty painful for me in the beginning with my son but got much better later on. I'm worried it will be as painful in the beginning with my second..

Breastfeeding :: Nipples Are So Sore

It's so painful! o.O my daughter knows what she is doing, she is a super sucker and wants to suck everything up! Lol. But my poor nipples are so sore!

Any advice on how to make them better? I have that lanolin cream, I've only used it once so far. Has anyone had good experience with this cream? I'm was told colostrum is also good to use.

What are my cans and cants? Foods, beverages, medicines. Obviously no drugs or alcohol or cigarettes -of course.

Breastfeeding :: Cracked Nipple

I had my little man on March 17, and since then I've been trying to breastfeed. It was going okay until I got a cracked nipple. All it does now is extremely stress me out. It seem like my little man is trying to eat more and more, and it just hurts so bad. I started him on formula, and he seems so much more happy. He's willing to actually be awake now without needing to eat, he also sleeps much better. I have pumped three bags of milk, but even the pumping is starting to be uncomfortable now. Are any mother not breastfeeding? Do you feel guilty?
