How to cut back on breast feeding?

I've been BFing for 8 months now. DD was EBF for the first 5 months.

Up until now I've really enjoyed it and found it very easy. But lately, now that DD is eating more solids, she's using my boobs more as a comfort than a source of food.

Which would be fine, except it's starting to hurt me. I never had problems with painful nipples before, but her teeth, coupled with the nuzzling-not-really-feeding make me really sore.

I want to start cutting down on the BFing but I've no idea how to go about it. I still BF her to sleep for daytime naps and at night. How would I get her to sleep if I stopped BFing her to sleep?

Help!

Dummy? My 5mo DD only falls asleep with her dummy if she doesn't fall asleep bfing.

No real advice by my dd irritated my nipple when teething. It would hurt for a few days then ease and a new tooth would appear.
