Post subject: Stopping bedtime breast feed
My daughters 15 months and I still breast feed her once a day, before bedtime. I was wondering when would be a good age to stop this so she can go to bed at night without any milk? I would've replaced breast feeding with milk from a cup by now, but when I tried this during the day she refused the milk each time. She goes to sleep at nap time without any milk really well. Should I just keep breast feeding her at beetime until she refuses it? How will i know she's ready? I wasn't really in a hurry to stop, but now she's got quite a lot of teeth, even though she doesn't bite, they do feel sharp.

I'm sorry I don't know the answer, I am interested to hear any advise though.
Could you maybe offer her water before bed and see how she gets on?

The one thing that worked for me was slowly making each session shorter so she would get used to having less milk, and then eventually get used to not breastfeeding anymore. Best of luck!

really try to stop now.
i am in the same boat and my daughter is 28 months !!!!!!
she wants breast when i get home from work, through the night (very tiring) and weekends when she feels like it.
i think most times she is drinking , while other times she is using me as a dummy. she has mastered the breastfeeding technique and hasnt bitten or hurt me.
i have tried all sorts of things, but alas, nothing works.
now when she asks for tittie, i say not now, when the people are not looking. it helps abit but still hectic.

i wouldnt mind advice please as well.
