Two main ways you can approach this....

The easiest and best way for the child is to allow him/her to self wean. That is also the longest way as it's pretty rare for a child to self wean under 2 and quite normal to still nurse at 3/4 years old.

The other main way is to just drop a feed a week and stay firm no matter what until he/she has been fully weaned.

A LOT of women find a balance somewhere between these two methods that works well for them AND the child.
