I don't see how people wean their kids

I've been slowly trying to nudge my LO towards weaning from the breast, but it's hard. We are down to 1-3 times a day, but it's hard saying no or distracting her when those little eyes are looking at me, and that sweet little voice is asking to nurse. :(

She is so funny about nursing, too. She loves it so much. She will kiss and hug my breast after she is done and say "I love my Milkie". Or she will say "here comes the big one" when she is about to nurse from the side that produces more. LOL. Anyway...this is hard :(.

I would be weirder out by my kid hugging my breast and kissing it. Just tell her she is a big kid now and big kids drink milk from a cup.

I had a hard time weaning my son too. I started to drop feedings gradually and then finally when we were down to just once a day (bedtime) I went away for a weekend with a girlfriend and left the kids with hubby. When I came back he asked again for the boob but I just said that they was no more mommy's milk and offered him water or regular milk instead. Good luck!

I think you're a troll. 'Cause this is just too ridiculous to be true. Here comes the big one? Troll, please.

Ok, when a child is old enough to say "Here comes the big one", it's definitely time to wean.

Id be weirded out if my kid did and said that. Tell her time for a big girl cup and put milk in there. And just say no if she tries to,nurse. Remember you are the adult she is the child.
