How to stop nursing?

She won't drink any milk I give her and wants to nurse every 15 min I don't know why its driving me nuts! I cannot breastfeed her that often. Even when we go out she will try to take my boobs out. Its like an obsession.

    Sounds pretty normal at that age. That was about the age where I started weaning. :) I think it's called nursing aversion, most women only experience it when they are pregnant, but some do after so long of nursing.

    I had a cup of either my milk, or something completely different (water, juice, other milk) that I offered whenever they asked for breastmilk. I didn't give in either (I know harder said than done). I would wear a sports bra, so it's hard to give in, it also helps slow down your milk production. Once i got them off the day nursing, I used to same method for night nursing weaning.

    Your boobs are a comfort zone for her, it's safe, it's constant.

    I did not know sports bra slowed down the milk production :( I have always used them. I offer water or juice when she wants to BF but she takes it and trows it away and gets real mad. It is hard not to give in specially when they start squealing lol she's been doing a lot of that during the night when she's in her crib :(

    I was always told they would but if you are used to it, it might not. I know it's hard to not give in. If hubby is willing, maybe he can distract her and get her back to sleep. When I weaned my middle daughter I cried with her for a week, neither of us were ready, but I was pregnant and loosing weight-I couldn't keep up the calories with the morning sickness needed for the baby and for nursing. I just held her close and we cried but other than bed time she didn't have problems.

    My sister has the same issues with her 3 year old that you are having with Elise but she hasn't weaned him yet.. so I can't ask her. All I know is to cut back, distract or stop cold turkey-which will be very painful for you. :(

    Honestly, i would say just wean during hte day to start, then worry about night. It will ease both of you into it. Maybe get her a special stuffed animal to replace for the comfort thing?

      She has a few stuffed animals, blanket and a night light teddy. Hubby had to get in her crib last night until she fell asleep lol

        I'm going through the same thing although my daughter can't have milk, I mix half breastmilk with half coconut milk for meal times so i'm still slowly introducing it, my daughter grabs my shirt in public too. I just distract her as much as I can and nurse before we go somewhere and make sure to have snack and her water sippy cup.
        So far it's going well but still rough.

        I did not know coconut milk could be given? I haven't tried that.

          LOL I wish I could help. My son weaned himself, so Eva is the only I have to go off.

          Lucky you lol I wish Elise would wean too. I think if I leave her she will continue until she's 4 lol

          LOL I understand that feeling. I think part of Andrew's weaning was my pregnancy with Eva (who we didn't know about), the milk changes taste when you are pregnant.. But all he seemed to take was one night of grandma putting him bed and then he was done. When I started weaning Eva, I told my mom she might have to come work her magic on Eva, too.

          I did think that she could be wanting it more because she's not feeling well or growing, too.
