I was started to wean my 18 mths baby girl,2 days it worked, but the third day she started asking for breast again!!! I don't know what to do!(I put mustard on my nipple, gradual weaning didn't work for her) herlp!!!

You can just be more stubborn than her and say no.... or you could continue to let her nurse and self wean (or wean her a bit later). I don't really know any other option.

My son (older) didn't nurse for 4 weeks (he was gone) and still came home and asked to nurse almost every day for 6 weeks after that... I just had to tell him no. I did let him latch a couple of times to see that I wasn't lying when I said there was no milk left, but that part wouldn't exactly work for you....
