Hi there! I am still nursing my 15 month old, and I have no interest in weaning per se, but want to stay sane. She seems to be going through a phase, which I'm sure is normal, but she will want to nurse briefly, and then come back 30-60 minutes later...this can get a bit tiring, and what's more, my husband has a negative reaction as well. He has been very supportive of nursing so don't get me wrong. We just want to set some limits....like maybe setting times for nursing, and not outside those times. She's never been much of a scheduled baby, and she can throw a great tantrum already. Any advice from others is appreciated.
Part two, is that I work part time. I don't pump much any more. She has issues with cow's milk, so we tried goat's milk a few weeks ago...she did great initially so we proceeded to finish the freezer supply of breast milk...guess we should have given both but live and learn. Now she is not drinking much, even when we try combining the goat's milk with breast milk. In the meantime, we've been offering more goat milk yogurt during the day, but I was wondering if other people had tricks for helping their toddler take non human milk.
