Help. I really want to stop breastfeeding as my DD is now 21 months old. But when she wakes in the night it is all she wants and cries if I don't. I know some people will say let her cry it out - but thats really difficult as we have a DS with autism and her crying wakes him up crying and then he takes hours to resettle. I know its just a comfort thing, I offer water - but its me she wants. I have considered putting something bad tasting on my boobs - but not sure what?!
You could try something like this to gradually get rid of the night feeds? We did it with DS1 at that age and it worked really well. I wouldn't try making your boobs taste nasty, that could be even more stressful for everyone (and/or she'll stop cold turkey, which could be a mastitis risk for you):
