It depends on the child. DS would only take straw cups and then he wouldn't take milk in anything.

Also it might be his comfort so you might need to give him something else, a small blanket or toy.

It is hard.
With dd I did it over a weekend and Dh basically did everything with her. Do you have anyone who could help you for a couple of days?

Sorry meant to add they can obviously smell the milk on you and associate with milk so if it's just you it is even harder. As you said he doesn't cry for milk at nursery.

No advice sorry but following. My dd is 23 months and still bf. I keep hoping she'll wean herself (esp as I'm now expecting dc2) but no luck so far! No idea how to get her to stop. Advice all says cut down gradually but I have no idea how to do this. Or just go cold turkey?

User have you tried yet and how's it going? I just decided to go cold turkey one day and am now on day 4 with no boob. It hasn't been half as bad as I thought! Just a bit of mild crying in the mornings (she's had it every blooming morning since she was born) but said no firmly and gave her a sippy cup of milk. Then just said no over the rest of the day whenever she asked. Fingers crossed but she hasn't taken it too badly at all. Thinking of you and wishing you luck!
