Hey Mama - I have an enthusiastic nurser here too and I hear you! Have you tried babywearing (sling is the cheapest try it out method). Sometimes that helps.

Also, I would recommend night weaning before you decide to give up the whole shebang. Takes about 5 days if I remember correctly. I just decided to do that last night with DD3 (20months) - she woke up to nurse at 12:30am and I nursed her for about 5 minutes and thought I might scream, so I unlatched her and here we go! She is MAD but fell asleep after about 10minutes of very angry yelling. I think with DD1 it took about 4 days until she just went to sleep. It helped me keep nursing for about another year until I cut her off at just under 3.
