how to wean toddler from nursing



Aysha was fully breastfed until she is 8 months old.. then i started her on formula.. it was tough finding the right formula that suits her.. i tried wyeth s26 but apparently she is allergic to lactose. meaning.. lactose intolerant. she'll get rashes on her face and phlegm. so i gave her lactose free milk formula.. between mamil LF and dulac LF. it was hard because these milk is very limited and not sold at the local supermarket.. so when she is about 14months old. someone from the supermarket told me that anmum only contains 2% lactose and gave me some trial pack. and aysha can tolerate the lactose in anmum. until recently the price of formula milk rised up and i cannot afford anmum anymore.. so i tried giving her dumex dugro.. i read somewhere that children should tolerate lactose after 1 years of age. so i try giving aysha dugro at 18months and there was no more allergy.. alhamdulillah...

however, she is not fully wean from breastfeeding. she still wants to breastfeed when i am around. especially at night when she wants to sleep. i feel like it is time to wean her completely due to her growing 6 teeth at the same time and it has become very painful to breastfeed her. i am now researching the internet to find the best way to wean her.. 

to those who is reading this post, please share your experience and knowledge on how you wean your babies.. thanks a lot in advance.. i 'll update again once i got more information on this..
