Answer: Hi Dear!
Usually babies r very attached to breasts and no harm in feeding til 2 yrs and beyond but yes initially it wil be difficult but wil be fine gradually..
But please be gentle,since your baby is alrdy 19 months old, he/she must have started talking or atleast understanding, hence;
1)Talk it out tell the baby that she is grown up now.
2)She has big teeth, she chew food now, drinking milk cause cavity in her teeth.
3) Read story books to distract.
4) Ask your husband to pitch in sometimes at bed times and make the baby sleep.
5) Try and drop feeding sessions one by one.
Try these to wean the baby gently.

Question: How to make the baby leave breast feeding . She is 18 month old. Any easy way
Babies are hard wired to breast feed you cannot switch very easily to a bottle. But the weaning process will take time and is not impossible the best way to do dis is to a replacement with a better tasting option. Limit ur nursing sessions so the baby feels hungry that way u it will also help u with solid food feeding. Go slowly as he is use to breast feeding don't cut it immidiately. Involve his dear daddy, let his daddy put him to sleep that way u ll be away n bottle feeding gets a chance. Make a decision and stay on it as u feel so bad for ur baby u ll go back to feeding fulltime then u ll have to start the weaning process again Hope I helped
