Weaning him for breastfeeding

At the age of exactly 2 years old, I decided to wean Dustin for nursing. I thought weaning him is hard because Dustin is really into it. That time he still never drink milk in a cup so I try to give him juice every time he wants to nursed. Every time he see me sitting down, he come up on me and want to nurse but I refused him, I stand right away and give him something else. I try to destruct him a lot, I think that really helps to wean him easily. We are both ready to do it and im so glad I did a good job. After 1 week of refusing him, he get used to it. He get used to it to drink water or juice and have some crackers and cookie for snack. At night before he go to bed I gave him some macaroni and cheese and giving him milk in a glass. He starting to sleep good at night without waking up in the middle of the night. He woke up at 5:30am and I transfer him in our bed and give him some milk. And also before he go to bed I keep reading him a story book that he like title “Are you my mother?” or a bible story book. He did a good job and im proud of him.
