How do I wean my 16 month old off of breast milk? She still has it every morning and night, and sometimes even during the day too.

If she accepts a bottle, you could offer a bottle of milk during the day instead. And for the nighttime feeds I set aside some time with my partner. Whenever I went in to settle my son at night I would always end up feeding him - I found it too hard not to! Instead my partner would go in to settle him. It took about a week to wean him off milk at night, but it worked, and eventually I could settle him at night too.
