Thank you, I also don't believe in "cold turkey" I feel that is curel! Thank you very much for your help, she is a stubborn one as I already give her milk in a sippy cup and she hates it! I will try again and again ... it is so hard! : )

Replace 1 regular nursing a day with food/milk for a fe weeks then drop another one. During the day is the easiest. I do not believe in the "COLD TURKEY" method I think its pretty terrible (just my opinion). At 2 your kiddo should really only be nursing a few times per day. You can tell him/her "not right now let's have big boy/big girl milk instead" and try and distract them from nursing.

It's a process!!! Mind you I only exc. breastfed until 10 months (gone back to work). Try replacing with a sippy cup of milk, that seemed to do the trick for my little guy, it may be devistating at first, but its a learning process and eventually they do catch on! Good luck.
