Don't worry. You are supposed to decrease the frequency of breastfeeding gradually. Don't try to stop it at once. Try to replace one or two breastfeeds with alternatives like cow milk from a sippy or cup. Try to change your routine like if she likes to breastfeed early in morning lying on bed try to get up swiftly before she wakes up and instead offer her an alternative feed. Try to incorporate "don't offer, don't refuse" approach. Don't offer her breastfeed actively but don't refuse if she insists.
Next Steps
gradually wean over next 2-4 months. provide extra comfort by cuddling, etc because it's an emotional process for the child.
Health Tips
wear complicated clothing like with zipper or hooks. try to distract her with a trip outside or something else when asking for breastfeed
