Holy cow mama, you're busy!  Congrats on baby number FIVE!  I guess women do breastfeed pregnant without issues.  It's really a matter if you want to or not or have the energy for it.  I had a 6 month old when I found out I was pregnant with my second.  SURPRISE!!  I did not breastfeed during the pregnancy as I was just too tired.  I weaned my first which for that particular baby, was easy.  I offered bottles and more and more and more of them until he was completely done with the boob. He had no problem going to the bottle as I think he found it easier and possibly more satisfying.  Eliminate day time feeding first, then choose either night or morning to let go of next.  Hopefully your baby will adjust nicely to it.  (IF you choose to wean and again, you don't have to, you can keep breast feeding if you want).  My second child loved nursing.  Oh my gosh, he did not want to stop.  But did eventually.  :>)  Anyway, congrats and stay in touch to let us know how it is going!

Your supply will probably take a hit and the taste eill change when milk turns back into colostrum. If you're  not in a rush let nature take it's  course and he may just give it up on his own accord.
