  • Put bandaids on your nipples and tell him you have boo-boos. Works like a charm.

  • Teach him to use a sippy cup or regular cup.

  • He uses sippy cups all day long, its just when he gets tired. He wont take anything but the boob and he will scream bloody murder til he gets it!

  • I know how you feel...I've had the same issue with my..*sigh* 2 yr old! Some moms probably think Im insane, but she drinks from a cup all day until about 2 when nap time kicks in. Its the only way I can get her to go to sleep peacefully. I did try bandaides, and she didn't care I had owies. She just ripped them off. But then I figured, its not hurting anyone by letting her bf. So I still let her when I am alone, but if someone else is here with me, like my mom, she helps out by taking her on a walk and my daughter falls asleep every time.
