Well it's about that time. I decided awhile ago that as soon as the baby is old enough to drink cow's milk, I would stop nursing him.
It's quickly approaching now and I wasn't sure where to start. With my oldest son, he was on formula and I just switched him and tossed his bottles at age 1.
I also thought I would feel completely relieved from being free from that responsibility but it's an odd feeling. I'm sad because it's a special bond that I have with him, but I am definitely ready to have my body back to myself and start wearing regular bras and sleep without one!
I have been introducing cow's milk to him over the past week because the doctor said he can start at 11 months. He really likes the milk and I give it to him in a sippy cup. He is drinking more and more each day and less and less interested in nursing.
I am have been offering him as much as he wants to eat in his meals until he lets me know. This has been working well and I think he is going to wean himself fairly quickly. It has been a lot easier than i thought it would be.
How did/do you wean your little one?
