wean 18 month old

my 18 month old is resisting weaning, she is so used to on demand nursing but doesn't eat enough and I am so ready to stop. She nurses as often as an infant is incredibly needy, grabbing by legs all day. She is getting her eye teeth but they have broken through so it seems emotional. Any ideas?
Glad to be on the forum!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
weaning is hard for both mom and the baby. you will have few rough days and then it will be ok. first try reducing the frequency of nursing.then introduce new foods....like boiled mashed veggies,hard boiled egg yolk etc. if she is crying before bed for breast milk then try asking your husband to put her to sleep.i have heard people rubbing bitter guard juice around the nipple before feeding to make the baby averse to breast milk.i am not sure how far it would work.u must replace the emotional bonding by other means like hugging her and sleeping ,talking to her before putting the baby to sleep to avoid mental trauma for the child

Mine was upset for about a week during weaning and then was fine. I made sure for us to have plenty of skin on skin contact and snuggle time. Also, distraction and changing the routine during typical nursing time seemed to ease the transition.
