Give your little one a cup/bottle of water instead. If he’s not getting what he wants then he will eventually give up

My son was still feeding like a baby from me through the day and night at 2 years old so I made the decision to stop breastfeeding. I put plasters over my nipples and when he went to feed I told him they were all gone. Took a couple of weeks for him to stop looking and then he started sleeping through the night. Not sure if stopping is what you are wanting to do, if not I’m not sure what to suggest.

Squirt lemon juice on your nipple before a feed and then tell them the milks gone bad.

I breastfed until my little one was 2.5 years, not my choice, she stayed over at her nans for one night and never had a night feed again!
