So i have been Bf my son for 15 mos now. He only gets it when nap and bed time now sense he eats table food and drinks from a sippy. I wanted to stop at a year but he is allergic to cows milk and can only have soy so i kept doing it to add the extra nutrients. But now I want to stop. Does anyone have any advice on the best way to stop. I love the comfort of Bf my son But I am also ready to stop. I am trying to go back to school and dont want him to be dependent on it for naps or bed time if i am not around. Please let me know what you guys think.

I stopped at that same age. I replaced it with a paci. The first couple times I tried he refused but pretty soon took to the idea.

I would nurse just a little on each side to reduce the amount of milk so there was no engorgement then stuck a paci in his mouth, while holding & rocking him.

It took about 2 weeks to completely wean him.

Good luck
