Brief Answer: Try to increase the interval. Detailed Answer: Greetings. So your child is one and a half year old. you should try to get him off your feeding eventually, not abruptly. meanwhile you should increase the portion of feeds other than mothers milk, so that he feels satisfied. so once you start increasing the interval between the feeds and increase the portion of other things, you will surely be able to achieve what you want. hope this helps. if you have any query, reply. regards.
