Hey Anamika, yes u can definitely stop feeding ur baby all of a sudden. it won't be a problem to either of you. the only thing is that your baby will be very cranky. and since he's two year's old, he will also been clearly understanding what's happening and will be angry with you since you have stopped feeding. he will try of all means for you to bow down to his wishes! but you need to stay very strong and have a lot of patience. Come what may, you do not feed him one you have decided abt it! It will be tough for you to see your child in such a cranky way, his cries will make u feel very bad for him but you need to stay strong. you will be needing help, a lot of it. ask your family too be with u in case you are a nuclear family, like the a people with whom your child bonds well. so that when the child gets cranky, those people can distract him and carry away from you. You will be having a lot of pain in your chest. in case it's unbearable, then express little milk from each breast once in a while. not too frequently since the flow has to stop. good luck
