You can start ajabalaashwagandhadi avaleh for instant health improvement. It will be easy to stop feeding if one week she sleeps with some one else and in day time too you stay away from her and refuses breast feed every time by giving her some interesting options. You can give things which she likes. But first of all you have to mentally prepared. babies are very capable to read your mind. So first be strict and prepared by yourself rest will be easy.
This avaleh preparation has some animal products in it. As a medicine I hope you will be fine with that. If not then other things you can try like shatavari and ashwagnadha preparations.
