She was old enough to understand that we weren't going to do it anymore. My dh was deployed and was going to be home in a few months for r&r and I still didn't want to be nursing... actually I never planned to nurse that long to start with but she had other ideas. Just tell him no and put him down if he starts pinching. If he is old enough to understand just stop all together now... I'm sure he will cry but just don't give in and they will stop.
Eek...I wouldn't let him cry it out at all. Bad for baby.

OP- How old is your child?
