I read this on Kellymom.com Has anyone tried it with there LO?
I don't know if this would work with a 2 year old, we made a weaning necklace...(m)
when my DD was 4 and she was still nursing to go to bed.
I bought a bunch of bags of beads, each of a different color, and a bag with patterened beads, and a long piece hemp necklace rope.
Each night that she chose not to nurse she got to pick one patterned bead and one set of plain beads. I gave her 5 beads of that color plus one more for each day in a row that she hadn't nursed. And she strung them up.
When she finally weaned altogether, I tied it up securely and gave it to her to keep. It's a long beautiful necklace that she considers one of her treasures.
