Seriously none of my others were like this. All she wants to do is nurse. If shes around me and I say "nope all done" she freaks out. I try keeping her really busy and distracting her but shes pretty insistant( this has been ongoing for months now :/) pedi says shes fine..no new teething etc. Gah help! Any good ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Is she hungry?  Is it a comfort thing?  A control thing? Try pinpointing what it is that she is really craving and see if you can figure out a way to replace some bf time with something else that satisfies that craving.

Easier said than done, I know :)

No :/ I would just simply stop offering it to her. Make her start drinking other things. Idk how to help with this one :/ I didn't ever really bf my son. I'm hoping he'll be done with a bottle by a year.

Pretty normal. The more you try and push her away the more she will want you. She's a baby.

Hey if you figure it out let me know. My 19 month old is doing the same thing. Anytime he gets close to me its boogie while smacking my and trying to pull my boobs out of my shirt.and when it is time to nurse he can go for hours if I let him and throws the worlds biggest fit when I cut him off.

At 15 months old I started cutting back on dd. I wanted to keep going buy not 15 times a day! By 18 months I started working partime. She nursed before nap and bedtime, and when I came home. Maybe a couple more times but nothing compared to before. I just told her later and distracted her. She cried some at first but you can't always make them happy. She nursed whenever she was sick or upset. We continued to nurse until she was 4.5 years old.
