I'm trying to wean my 1 yr old off the breast, has anyone tried putting the yucky tasting stuff used to stop thumb sucking on their breasts? I'm thinking maybe if it wasn't pleasant for her anymore she would stop on her own.Answer Question

"a year old.. oh my gosh.. you should have weened a long time ago.. the best thing to do is just stop doing it, and give them sippie cups. "
Why? There is no need to wean a child before one. WHO recommends nursing until age 2. My 19 month old is going strong and won't be weaning ANY time soon! If the mom wants to wean for her own comfort/needs/ desire, etc. she should cut one feeding over the coarse of a few days. Gentle weaning is best. NOT stopping cold turkey. It will be hard on your breasts(engorgement) AND your baby. It just takes time.
