I realize this is not actually an answer to your question - but I would really encourage you to consider not weaning yet. You could consider your hurting breasts as a sign that it is not yet time to wean. Especially since your daughter is only nursing once or twice a day, it doesn't take a lot of you time, and it will still continue to provide her (and you) with many benefits, including physical health (both for general immunity and nutrition as well as extra help when she is sick), emotional wellbeing (contributing to her sense of safety and belonging), and bonding - the very special connection the two of you share, which will help her in her intimate relationships later in life. It is generally best to wean when the child is ready, unless there are strong reasons to wean sooner. Since she is only nursing once or twice a day, she may well gradually wean on her own within a few months or a year. I imagine this may be your last child, and I would encourage you to savor the special relationship until she is ready to move on (there are emotional benefits as well to letting her take the lead in weaning). La Leche League has a lot of good information, including an excellent book called How Weaning Happens (which basically encourages child-led weaning but also has information about mother-led weaning and how to help with issues such as your question).
