how do i wean my toddler?

She's going to be 2 on March 2, 2009. It's harder than it seems and I've tried the "take a feeding away each week" that doesn't work. What I'm mostly having problems with is night time or when she's sleepy. She used my breast to fall asleep and she'll still wake up during the night to feed. Advice??

  • Sorry. All i can say it so be consistant. If you take it away, don't give it back. She may scream and cry but I don't know any other way around it. You can always try to substitute something else. Maybe let her nurse but give her a stuffed animal or blanket to hold while she nurses. then when you stop nursing, give her the aforementioned toy.
