don't sit down in your favorite nursing chair
keep busy, distract, offer lots and lots of favorite eats and drinks every 2 hours during the day and evening.
if evening nursing is a usual part of your bedtime routine, work to move it earlier in the night, so you nurse and then bath, pj's books, etc. so the nursing gets away from the whole go to sleep thing.
Or move nursing to very very last after big snack, bath, pj's, brush teeth, book, etc. start to make the bedtime routine a bit longer and start it a bit later than usual. so by the time you get to the brush teeth and book they are ready to conk. that can mean shorter and shorter bedtime nursing sessions, cause they are just too tired.
don't offer but don't refuse works mostly.
you will have to play a lot of it by ear as to what will work for the temperament of your particular baby.
