I weaned my oldest around 18 months but at least she had a passifier, or "bobble" (it's what she calls the pacifier-don't ask me why) to calm and soothe her. Coral doesn't take a passifier or bottle. She is a total boobie girl and only wants her mommy. Oh what do do?????

How to stop the "Boobie"
Do any of you have tips on how to wean my daughter? She is 19 months old and is currently down to two feedings a day. If it were up to her, it would be two feeding every hour. She loves the "boobie" and asks for it frequently. She nurses right before she goes down for her nap and before bed time. Sometimes Aaron will put her down for bed, thus getting me out of that feeding. But lately she screams for me when he picks her up to go read/go to bed. I HATE her crying and wish this was just something I could change over night. I love nursing her but I know that is has to stop at some point, especially if I want a third child. If I could get pregnant (not that I'm trying April, I promise) while nursing, I would. How does that happen anyway?
