I really wan't to stop breasfeeding, but it seems that most of the time my daughter needs to be breasfeed to go to sleep at night and durind day naps, plus i am going back to work in two months, tried the breas pump a few months ago, but didn't work....

I know it can be a tough transition, especially if your daughter seems to need the feeding to fall asleep. Does she fall asleep after eating from a bottle? I know some moms who've kept the bedtime nursing just to help the baby go to sleep. I've heard of another suggestion to help ease the transition (I've never tried it but some moms say it works). As you breastfeed your daughter, put a baby blanket between you every time. Have you daughter hold it or touch it while nursing, then when it's bed time or nap time, give her the blanket.

Good luck to you!
