2 yr old...how to wean?

So. This is not my first baby. #4 actually.

All my other kids self weaned. Voila. No worries. 7 months, 18 month, 13 months.

Miss C has decided to hang on....she's 24.5 months. NO desire to wean. I had a long weekend with a friend...hoping that would distract her and finish the job...now she's obsessed and wants to nurse constantly...!!

I've never had to wean, much less an older baby... What worked for you?? Please? Thanks!!!

Re: 2 yr old...how to wean?

With dd2, I was in pain from being pregnant and also had a dip in supply, so I used that to help promote the weaning process. Distraction works great. If she asks, direct her to another activity. Start to cut out nursing sessions slowly so you won't get engorged (and she won't feel abandoned). Eventually it will taper off.

Hope this helps!

there's a weaning support forum on here. There might be some mamas with good ideas there. I have no ideas. Mine is 21 months and still nursing.
