Re: LO seems to be giving up BF???
At 11 months old, if you choose to wean you should replace nursing with either formula (until 12 months) or, less ideally, with whole goat's/cow's milk. (USA pediatricians' recommendation is to delay cow's milk until 12 months, Europeans say you can safely introduce cow's or goat's milk at around 9-10 months.) And remember, your LO will need to have his fat and calcium needs met as a toddler, too, so you will need to continue to either offer whole milk dairy products (yogurt, cheese, milk, etc.) or find some combination of non-dairy solids that offers the same nutritional benefits. Which is why I would urge you to continue to nurse: it is so much easier to meet a kid's nutritional needs when nursing than to try to get them to eat the right balance of dairy and solids!
Is there anything in particular about nursing that is getting you down? Obviously not all moms want to nurse toddlers, but sometimes toddler nursing is really worth it, and it can be a lot easier to nurse a toddler than a lot of moms expect. I'd love to sell you on the benefits... If you're interested, that is.
