Answer: Hello dear.. all babies should exclusive breastfeed for six months,and then gradually introduce home foods along with breast milk,and continue to breastfeed for two years and more,babies are hard weird to breastfeed feeding,we can't easily let them wean,so slow and gradually we can start the weaning process,below are the tips to be followed for weaning
You can start skipping the feed session slowly,for example if you feed for four times,then gradually reduce to three ,two session,and completely stop feeding
Make them sleep with elders
If you are staying with inlaws,make your kid sleep with grand parents for couple of days,or send them to close relatives home for two days,so that they forget feeding
Apply neem oil

Answer: Hi dear,
Quitting breastfeeding post 2 years needs little patience and determination,as toddler gets addicted to it.good that you took this step now itself.now that your milk supply would be comparitively less,you might not have issue with breast engorgement.but still for comfort you can place a cabbage leaf inside the bra.wear a comfortable bra,and can use cold gels to sooth th breasts.gradually reduce the day tim feeding first,as it is easy to distract baby from breastfeeding at day time.as they get quite playful.night feeding can be stopped by making your baby sleep with your husband or anyone else .donot go near the baby during night.it could take few days to week to make your baby go off breastfeeding.so have patience.this is how I did.and it worked.
