Re: Please help me...I don't want to BF anymore

At 21 months he can learn some limits. I started to limit sessions a bit with my dd at around that age meaning she didn't nurse every single time she wanted to and I would sing the abcs then 12345 and when we were done the nursing session was done. She began to understand this very quickly. It may help make things more bearable for you.

Mama don't feel bad. You have done an awesome job! I agree that it is reasonable to set some limits and teach nursing manners.

My DS is still nursing at 27 m/o and when he was around your LO's age, I started gently discouraging him from nursing at times. I would offer alternatives like a drink from a cup and a snuggle or some other activity. Over time, he found other things to do and now he only nurses at naps, bedtime or when his is sick or hurt. I did not want to force him to wean, but I wanted to set-up a situation that I felt like I could continue on with for as long as he needs me to.
