    Have I tried? Yes. Several times. Starting when she was 15 months. She is nearly 18 months now. As I type this I'm heading into her room to feed her again- the third time since she was put to bed because its effective in ensuring she goes straight back to sleep. I have tried no overnight feeds but she is so determined and she screams. A lot. Loudly. And wakes everyone up. It's not cool when her brothers have to go to school.
    I've tried don't offer don't refuse. To make up for me not offering, she started asking for more. I've tried distraction. Sometimes it works. Every other time it results in meltdown. I've tried offering alternative. Water. Water in a pretty cup. Water in a big girl cup. Milk. Warned milk. Hot milk. I even let her try some milo.
    Like I said- she is stubborn and knows what she wants.
    I realise I sounded quite blasé with the whole "just ask your mum" thing.
    I didn't mean to be. It would be nice if it was as simple as "voila!"
    But I reckon if you said "mum I'm struggling. I've tried x y z and none of it's working can you help" she would. It sounds like quite a mumsy thing to do. And the sort of thing a mum would do for her daughter and a nan would do for her granddaughter.
    I love the fact that you describe your daughter as determined! She will grow up to be amazing x

    Nomsie, I am going through the same. DS2 is so stubborn. He is pretty good during the day but overnight he wakes up and comes into my bed, between that time and when we get up he'll be on and off and screams if we try to put him back to his bed without bf. He has just turned 2.

    There is no chocolate in the house... It's been another one of those days and I need chocolate but I decided not to buy any "if we don't buy it we can't have it" I said. What was I thinking because not I don't really like past me very much.

    Oops didn't mean to thank. I was going to suggest I have some for you. Coles had chocolate on special so I have 2 blocks of top deck in the cupboard. I'm happy to have a row on your behalf?

    I'm racking my brains to think how I weaned DD3, I know exactly the place your in and my DD was just as determined to keep her booby (all night especially) as yours. She is a couple months older than your DD (May '13 baby) and self weaned (when I stopped offering) at 18 months. The only thing that changed at that time was I started working a couple of 3-5 hour shifts a week, usually over bedtime. But your DF does shift work so being out of the house at this time of night probably wouldn't work for your family would it? I was so desperate that I considered ways to suppress my milk just so that DD wouldn't want boob anymore, but I don't think I was making that much anyway so I don't think she would have really cared lol.

    I struggled weaning dd1. She loved it so much she would help herself in the middle of night. She would climb out of her cot from 12 months old to do it. Them I got serious about the weaning and started fully dressing for nighttime ie bra's under singlet under button up top. She still managed to get through. I eventually got success when I started making it taste bad. I started painting lemon juice and other bad tasting stuff on my nipples. It took a few weeks but it worked eventually.

    Haha I just had an image in my head of being sprung by df painting yucky food substances on my nipples... Awkward...!

    A big problem in a roundabout way (and I know I shouldn't complain, since so may women struggle with the opposite) is that supply is not an issue. I have plenty of milk. I keep telling dd that mamas milk is running out soon and she needs to stop- it makes her angry. Lol. @GucciDahling I cannot think of a more accurate adjective for dd than determined. She knows what she wants and she isn't satisfied until she gets it! A Leo if ever I met one!

    You enjoyed it so much you had a second row. You had the willpower though to stop after 2 rows, so good job haha.
