Stopping breastfeeding by putting hot sauce or pepper on the nipples WHAT!(piog)

SO my hubby family was over my house the other day they noticed that I'm still breastfeeding my son who just turned 1 this week. They said oh no, your still breastfeeding your now 1 year old still, he needs to be drinking from a cup! Try putting hot sauce, or pepper on the nipples then he will stop wanting the breast.  I am upset bcause I am comfortable with it still and my baby isn't ready to get off the breast. Has anyone ever heard of this to stop breastfeeding? I felt that was rude of them.

That's really sad. I would never advise anyone to do that. Where they joking about it? Seems crazy that someone would think that was ok.

Well, keep nursing if you want. But holy crap that is just a damn cruel way to wean, IMO.

if you want to keep nursing or not is your decision not theirs.  but using hot sauce to wean your child is just aweful and cruel!

Spike their coffee with it the next morning. Coffee is a vice, it's time they grew out of it. And hot pepper is the perfect method. :p

Ignore them. Breastfeed for as long as you and your child desire. It's perfectly acceptable to breastfeed for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc. years. There's a lot of biological milestones that happen that encourage the child to wean naturally, and it stays healthy for as long as the child is willing and able to nurse.

In this country, most children that are allowed to wean themselves will wean at 2.5-4 years old.

You wouldn't take driving lessons with that uncle that never got his license.. You wouldn't trade recipes with the neighbor who only ever feeds her family TV Dinners.. You wouldn't train for a marathon with the friend who gets tired of running after a mile. And if your mom says that no one in your family has ever been able to do it, don't expect her to teach you how.. Get advice from people that have MADE IT WORK. It doesn't have to be hard. It doesn't have to be painful. We've been there. We've done it. You can, too!

I've heard of it. It's rude that they'd tell you to wean at all. It's even worse that they'd tell you to take a forceful and harsh route to do it. Why take something so good and make it the baby think it's bad to stop??

No they were real. They say since he's now 1 i should not be breastfeeding still, he's old enough to drink from a cup now. But the thing is he's not ready to stop all he knows and wants is the breast(he attacks me to get to the breast, pulling my shirt up lol). I gave him a cup today and yesterday(just to see if he would take it) and he plays with it throwing it around. He thinks it's a toy lol.

I would have said something about the age thing, becuase I'm very much for self weaning and want my kids to hit 2 years... We went a couple months over that w/ Kalila.  But the hotsauce thing... I have heard of it... I think my main issue is that's not self weaning and like I said, I really prefer that (I know sometimes you have to help things along...)  Beyond that it could be seen as kind of cruel... but... at the same time if anyone had suggested it to me for my daughter I'd have laughed my hind end off because that would not have done a thing to deter her. She likes hot sauce!
