My 12 month old nurses frequently, following no particular schedule. She begs to nurse when she's happy, sad, cranky, upset...etc. She sleeps with me and still wakes up once in the night to feed. I'm a full-time student, part-time employed. The breastfeeding experience was a great one, but I feel like its time to end. How do I wean her when there's not even a set schedule she's on? I'm really nervous about this.

you could just say "no more!" you'll hate yourself for a few days, maybe 2 wks, but that's probably the quickest way to do it lol! don't worry; she'll live long enough to throw a much bigger tantrum as a 16 yr old when you "ruin her life" again... for the millionth time

Good for you for standing up for what is best for YOU too! Just because you're a mother doesn't mean you should ignore your own needs. I can't help you one the wean thing because I didn't breastfeed that long. Maybe you could introduce her to other things that can help her cope or soothe. You have to find out what those things are first.
