  • my daughter is 16 months old and had been nursed for about 14 months. for the last 6 of those months, i was not nursing more than 2 times a day, and not for long, mostly for comfort. well, my daughter has been using a bottle and sip cup only for about 2 months now and has been lifting up my shirt and trying to latch on!! what should i do?

    i am sorry I have no advice on that, maybe just tell her that her drink is in her sippy cup?

    I'm trying to cut Juliann down to 3 x's a day, if she starts going down my shirt I just tell her no milkies right now. That seems to get the point across, until she tries again 5 minutes later.

  • I'm probably no help either - I would just let her nurse.

  • It depends, do you want to keep nursing or are you completely and happily done with it?

    If you are done, just say no. I would just tell my son that we weren't doing that anymore, and offer him a bottle or sippy cup, or a different distraction. He caught on pretty quickly.

    Good luck!
