As above really . I love feeding but it's getting ridiculous she constantly what's "boobs" . We have tried lots of times to get her to gently stop but no luck. To complicate matters I have a 9 month old who is obviously still feeding so it's hard rejecting dd2 when dd3 is having a feed in front of her . Help flowers

Interested in this too OP but no useful advice I'm afraid.

DS (almost three) is feeding at bedtime and in the morning for about five minutes and I also have a four month old DD I'm breastfeeding.

I've had nursing aversion since getting pregnant and it's just getting worse (when DS feeds only, no problem with DD). Tandem feeding feels awful sad

I would like to stop BF'ing DS now but he's showing no signs of wanting to.

Inhad this battle when ds was 2.5! And oh my gid what a battle it was. My dd stopped bfing when ds was born and it was colostrum. I honestly felt at one point my only choice was to get pregnant again to see if it worked again! In the end id weened down to nght time only and then a nee baby was born in the family and i told a terrible lie to my two year old. Insaid all my milk had gone now as the new baby needed it and i bought him a baby cino cup from costa to have his milk from like a big boy instead.
