I would just wean her like you would at any age. Cut out a feeding every few days. And just don't give in. She'll get over it.

Sorry Lovin.  With my youngest I cut out a feeding a day each week.  Good luck.

Slowly wean over a few weeks. Do something fun to distract her during the feeding time that you are trying to cut. Goof luck!!

 I can't imagine! My DD BFed until she was 14 months and I was SO over it. The only other thing I could get her to drink from was nuby cups and she liked tham enough that she preferred them over my boob! That's all the advice I've got!

Good luck hunny!

 I agree w/ the others - cut one feeding out every week or so, and distract her around that time.  Maybe let her pick out her new fav sippy cup from the store?

Perhaps cut out feedings at family meal times. Give her a sippy instead. After a week, cut out another feeding or two.

 I did this too. I replaced her feedings with regular meals. It helps a lot!
