I am trying to get my 18 daughter weened off. She only nurses before nap time in the morning and bedtime; she wakes up around 5am and wants to be nursed. I really want to ween her off but nothing works. I also have a 3 1/2 year old whom I nursed she was weened off right before she truned 1 with out a problem but she also sucked her thumb which was her comfort. My 18 month has never taken to her thumb or a soother.. Help!!

I weaned my son off at 11 months. The only two feedings left were the morning and at night, like you. It's best to take away the night time feeding last I found. With the morning one, I just stopped doing it and he was fine. He was off of the soother by 4 months and he was never a thumb sucker. Have you tried not nursing her in the morning? What is she doing when you don't nurse her in the morning?
