Breastfeeding and walking is not associated at all. You may proceed to wean your child off the breast. It will not influence her development.

If you stop breast feeding, your daughter will still learn to walk. Many babies are bottle fed and all learn to walk.

For advice on stopping breast feeding without causing trauma to you or your baby, you should consult a lactation consultant who can gently guide you through the weaning process.

Hi,
To be hosnest with you there is no such. If you know the best way of stopping you better stop right now. My daughter is 29 months now and Im still breastfeeding. I really need to stop but it's very difficult now cause she can walk and speak fully. She can also take it out by herself if she wants it. She doesn't care whether I'm busy with people, driving. It is very dificult now that she understand everything.
