HOW TO STOP BREASTFEED
My baby is already 2 and half years old, and he still loves breastfeed.
I have tried a lot of different ways which like putting bang aids, spicy, bitter, and vinegar.
He enjoys sacking nipples more than eating the breast milk.
How can I stop him?
I need some help.

Wow, that’s pretty long, but it is good to the baby. I breastfed both my babies up to a year.
It is usually harder for babies to give up breastfeeding when they are over a year old especially for the night-time feed. Breastfeeding for them is an emotional attachment, you should ensure that you gradually reduce your feeds, and offer him all the love and affection during the weaning period.
Some suggestions are:
Try eliminating the number of breastfeeding. That's how I did it. If he asks for it, replace it with a sippy cup filled with water or whole milk or the expressed mother’s milk. Since your baby is over 2 years, I would not suggest giving him a bottle. Have someone other than you feed the baby or feeding the baby facing out (his back to your stomach).
If your son wakes up in the middle of the night, it is best to have someone other than you to soothe the baby, so he is less likely to ask to be breastfed.
By the way, you need to be firm with your baby, start by putting limits on where and when you breastfeed.
I have heard people covering breast with mustard and say “eeww” to indicate that it was really disgusting. However, don’t let him taste it because he might like the taste.
Other way may be to introduce more activities to him so he forgets about breastfeeding.參考資料： My own experience - breastfeeding two babies

It is more of psychological reasons than the demand of fresh milk.
If you can cope with his habbit, maybe it is not a bad idea just to allow him to keep it until due time. Nature will call when it is a proper time.
However, if it troubles you to some extent . My suggestion is to insist on hugs and cuddles as a replacement of sacking nipples. Be kind and gentle to direct his demand towards somewhat you can accept. But you have to stick on your rules. Your baby will understand soon.參考資料： myself
