my daughter is 20 months and still breastfeeding quit frequently that's not so much the problem i have. the problem is she has gotten to where she doesn't want to eat or drink anything just breastfeed all the time. i breastfed my first daughter till 22 months but she was only nursing at night not all through the day also. any advice on how to slowly wean her to just nights so it won't be so bad when i cut her off completely?

Will she understand a deal? my daughter did similar things and I would tell her "if you eat three bites you can nurse after that" and that worked most of the time without any fuss. It could also be a passing phase. When my DD (21 months) is teething her nursing skyrockets and food decreases, but it is temporary and I oblige.
