I planned on nursing for a year but slowly but surely time passed and i'm still here feeding this 20 month old toddler. It's emberrasing because she is so strong minded and she wants mommys comfort when ever she wants it! I have decided to stop but it is so hard and I don't even know where to start.Answer Question

I let my son ween himself at 2 1/2 years old.If it's really getting to you then don't let her have it all the time.Even if she wants it or throws a fit if you say no to her.I don't know how many times she gets breast milk in a day,but you could only let her have it two or three times a day.You could also try and transition her to only get it at nap time or bed.If you tapper her off slowly over a few months then it might not be so traumatic on you both.Another thing that you could do is give her a tippy cup of something when she asks for your milk.Eventually she wont want it anymore.Whatever you decide to do hold strong and don't cave.Other wise she'll think that she can still have it no matter what you say or do.Good luck!
