Eventually, she just decided she was done and stopped cold turkey! Some methods I tried are:

Cutting one feeding each week until you aren't nursing anymore at all

Distraction/redirection - toys, snacks, whatever

Flat out refusal - Just say no!!

Replacing nursing sessions with a sippy of pumped breastmilk, then slowly transitioning that to other fluids/weaning from the bottle/sippy once nursing has stopped.
