Any advice on how to gently wean a toddler that LOVES to nurse?
Hmm, I'm guessing you're not nursing a teenager.
But as for weaning Evalyn, I'm hoping it goes okay. I'm thinking seriously about weaning my 18 month old boobaholic. I love that you have pumped milk for her. Will she take a bottle? (My girl never would). Maybe you can wean her from breast to bottle and mix in a little milk (if she's not allergic) to make the breastmilk last longer?
Distract her with fun stuff like bubbles, going outside, dancing, etc. during the day. And let me know if you think of anything to help with the night weaning. I would enlist my DH if I could, but he's not really into that.
