Rebellion to dropping feeds

My DD has just turned one and is a bfeeder. I'm getting to the point now where I would like to think about wrapping up feeding as she's a good eater and, although it might sound selfish, I'm just a bit fed up really. DD is and always has been a milk monster and until recently was still having six feeds in a 24 hr period, but some were so tiny, I thought it was a sign she was ready to cut down too. I've started doing "never offer, never refuse" and it was working well. We were down to two/three, but over the last few days she's been asking all the time and is eating less solid food. Sleep is going a bit to pot as well, but not sure if that's related or if she's dropping a nap. Or perhaps I can just put that down to the age-old excuse of teeth.

Has anyone else's little darling rebelled against dropping feeds, and if so, what did you do?

Can't be much use as I'm not trained and didn't have much trouble with ceasing bfing. Think though that if you google la Leche league weaning toddler you should get some info, but I would really recommend phoning a BFC, try the National Breastfeeding Helpline smile

Have you managed to speak to a BFC yet Trina?

Hi Jilted, sorry for the late response - had nasty,nasty food poisoning and so gave up giving up for sheer ease. Ironically, we're down to three feeds a day now with no complaints, so perhaps we're on e same page after all. I'll keep the LLL in my back pocket in case of another uprising though - thank you.
