Should I wean our 22 month old off of breastfeeding due to a new baby coming or do I wait for my milk to dry up on it's own? Should we try to transition him into a toddler bed or should we buy a bigger bed and have all 4 of us co-sleep together? Any advice on how you handled the transition with baby number 2?

I'm looking for advice from other attachment parenting/co-sleeping/extended breastfeeding families. We recently found out we are expecting baby number 2. Currently, our 22 month old son sleeps in bed with us every night and still nurses 1-2 times throughout the night. I'd be happy to continue this arrangement as long as he saw fit, but I worry about how the new baby will disrupt this pattern. Should I try to wean him? Or do I wait for my milk to dry up on it's own? Should we try to transition him into a toddler bed? Should we buy a bigger bed (we already feel a little cramped in our queen) and have all 4 of us co-sleep together? Any advice from similar-minded families on how you handled the transition with baby number 2 would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
