I agree, just stick to it & be consistent. She will eventually learn that she cannot pull on you because thats not good behavior. My sister in law had a similar issue but her baby was actually pulling on her while breastfeeding which was really bad. She put him in this sleep sack called the zipadee zip and he wasn't able to pull anymore. Not sure if your having that issue but just thought id throw that out there if it helps in any way!

A little tough love. Do not enable her when she throws those fits. When you tell her No an she throws at fit, just ignore her fit. Walk away & don't give in."hurting mommy", and just leave it at that. Maybe talk to her & tell her that she is It may be hard but it can work if you stick with it and it will benefit you and even your daughter to becoming more dependent. Just try it. Stick to it, even if she gives you that cute little "throwing a fit" face, do not give in. Or even if she makes you feel bad for her. Be stern but NOT mean. You can make this smooth & as nice as possible! Good luck! This advice has help many.
