My daughter will be 3 in july and I am getting unconfortable breastfeeding, I cant do anything alone, she still sleeps with us, so even at night if she wakes up she asks to feed. She eats very well during the day and she likes almost everything, but she still wants breast during the day, not as often, but to fall asleep.. any idea on how can I wean her? I was thinking of making my breast taste funny, but I dont want to freak her out either.. please help!!!Answer Question

OK, this worked wonders for me. TELL HER SHE DRANK IT ALL! My daughter totally bought it. I started a week early, & said "wow Tulsi! You have finished almost all of it, it's almost gone!" I made a big deal about it, told her how proud i was that she was able to drink it all, then one day I told her it was ALL GONE. NONE LEFT, she drank it all up! Then i told her that we have other kinds of milk to drink if she is thirsty. She was a lil bummed that my milk was all gone, but it made sense to her & she moves on pretty quickly. This worked like a charm for me & my daughter had just turned 2 before i stopped. It might work for you, it's worth a shot anyways. GOOD LUCK!

the only thing I can think about is diversion. When she wants to nurse try to redirect her to something else. I think cuddling her at that point wouldn't work the greatest because it will make it harder for you to keep her off the breast. Keep gently pushing her away from you when she is trying to nurse. This will be tough on both of you guys for a little while, but it will get better and she will soon forget about her desire to nurse. Good Luck to you!!
