  • drop one feeding a day. the nite time feeding is usually the last one to go. replaced the feeding you drop with something like cudlding or soemthing that is fun.

  • I just started only BFing before naps and bedtime to get my son to sleep. He got wise to it and soon refused the boob thinking he'd get to sty up..

    That's just my kid though. Every kid is different.

  • She should consider different options on how to do it and decide what way will work best for her and the toddler.

  • i definitely wouldn't suggest weaning right with a big change like starting day care if that's what you mean. baby will probably want to be nursing extra when she is with mom for comfort. if you mean to get her used to not nursing during the day while she's at school, maybe she should try searching on which is a really good site for breastfeeding.
