I tell Bella no a lot cause if she is bored, she wants nummies. At first she got pissed. After a while, she would protest but was more easily distracted. Now, I tell her she has to wait til its bedtime and she stops asking.

I rarely say no, but I try to distract her, because a lot of the time i think she is just bored and sees them there so instead of just whipping out the boob, i will say, oh did you see your new book, or do you want to go outside?

I almost never say no, but they just started asking to nurse when they are bored, so I'll probably start. I think they are going to need some re-directing.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

She usually doesn't ask unless she's tired, but if she just randomly asks I usually try to distract and if she keeps on it I'll nurse her. If we're out, I tell her to wait until we get home. She's usually fine with it.

The only time I really say no is if we are out. And I usually just try to distract her until we get home. She rarely asks for it anymore and I think she is getting close to weaning. I'm kind of sad, but at the same time I am so happy we made it this long.

I probably say no about a quarter of the time. Saying no usually just puts it off for 15-20 mins or so though. I did realize awhile back that some of the time when she wants to nurse it's just because she's thirsty and she'll happily accept an alternative beverage in lieu of nursing.

I do it very rarely. It isnt in my best interest to delay though because the longer that passes between the more it hurts. We night weaned officially few nights ago (she had mostly stopped by herself) so if she asks at night then the boobies are asleep. She accepts that.

I don't really say no. Sometimes she'll nurse out of boredom but I still nurse her. I work during the day and miss out on nursing her then so it kinda makes up for it. On the rare occasion that I say no she'll wait or sometimes she'll try to lift my shirt of stick her face in my chest and crack up laughing.
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy

I rarely say no. Kenni asks alot. I dont think shes bored, I think its her major source of comfort. Like if I work all day the second I come home we instantly have to nurse on and off for a couple hours straight I do get annoyed, but if I say no we have the worst melt down ever. Its just her way of being really close to me. If were out, I tell her she has to wait. Shes easy distracted then..so its ok until we get home.
