if you are tired of breastfeeding, then it's time to wean.

extended breastfeeding is supposed to be a mutually enjoyable thing for mother and child.

just do it. when the child asks, gently say no and offer something else, depending on whether you think your babe wants comfort, something to drink, or needs a snack. if a tantrum ensures, have the dad or someone else take the kiddo. hand express a little to relieve pressure.



it may take a week or so, but your child will get over it.

Maybe he/she is over it, my daughter was just done one day. I continued to pump, because the most important this is she is still getting the milk...the container shouldn't matter.
