I read that a way to wean is to leave the kid with someone else for a weekend. Then you won't be there to remind them of your milkyness. I personally am against sudden weaning. If you must wean drop one feeding a week, that's my advice.

I don't know how to do that because she feeds on demand and at night so she just comes up and wants it at any random time of the day

I think you should ask around and see if any friends or family can have a standing play date with your DD and you can go have some you time. If you aren't there, as I said, she won't really be thinking about milk. And since she's two you could feed her table food to fill her up and she'll want less milk. I feed on demand with my LO, so I know how rough it is. I am commited to self weaning, though. So I'm just riding this wave as long as my sanity will allow. LOL! Also try coconut milk in a sippy cup. It's low in sugar, high in B vitamins, full of amazing coconut goodness (it's actually a really healthy food), and here in WA the organic Safeway brand is pretty affordable!

Im in the same boat. My little one is 15 months and although i dont mind breastfeeding she feeds on demand and still feeds through the night. I dont mind day time feeding but i would love to cut out the night time feedings. I havent had a full night sleep in 2 years :(

Same way i broke my son from the bottle I suppose. Being loving, kind, and patient for the couple days she misses it. Re enforce that she is now a big girl and growing up. Take her to the store and allow her the big girl job of choosing her own cups. It all worked with my son. He cried for two days and then was done with it.
