Just that really. Dd is 14 months, always a bottle refuser. I work 4 days a week and on those days she just has a morning and evening feed (night weaned at 12 mo). But when I'm around she wants more. I've tried really hard today not to bf- distracting, offering food- but after 90 minutes of whinging and crying I've just given in.
The morning feed is around 5.30 and at least I can lie down for that and doze but I really want to have stopped completely by 18 months. I feel like I need to get her down to just evening feed soon.

Any advice? I'm aware of the advice to feed for 2 years but I don't want to.

Totally fair enough that you want to stop now. To get her off the morning feed could your partner see to her in the morning and offer a sippy cup or similar? After a few days she should get the message.

Thanks juno. I think dropping the morning will help with her wanting other feeds in the day when I'm here (I hope!)
