How do you teach a 2.5 year old child who has NEVER fallen asleep without nursing (except in the car) to go to sleep without nursing. This kid would nurse until she's 8 if I'd let her, but I'm kindof getting tired with the whole thing. I don't mind comfort nursing her, but would really like to get away from the sleep/nursing thing. I don't want to make her cry or make her feel like I'm rejecting her in any way. Is there a gentle way to do this? Her verbal skills aren't really high, so I am not able to reason with her. (ha, could I dream of reasoning with a 2 year old? Any ideas?
