How do I get my 16 month to stop breastfeeding? She still wakes up multiple times in the middle of the night to eat. She eats real food too, but it doesn’t make her want the boob any less. I really need to stop for personal reasons but she also uses it as a comfort thing which makes it harder to stop. I also have 0 help.
For example, if you often nursed your child for comfort, you’ll have to find other ways to make him feel better. Read a book, sing a song together, or play outside instead. If your child protests, try to stay calm and be firm. If you need to, hand him to your partner for a cuddle. Www.babycenter.com
Have you tried switching the night feedings to a bottle, or just timing it for 15 minutes to see if you baby goes back to sleep
