Hi, this is my first time posting here. I have some questions and concerns about weaning. My daughter is 14 months old now. When she was born I thought I would wean her around 18 months, but now I'm not sure if I might want to wait until she is 2 or 2.5 instead (maybe help her immune system get through another winter). We have both had a wonderful time breastfeeding and it is still my daughter's primary food source. I don't see this changing anytime soon. My biggest concern with weaning is around sleep. I have nursed her to sleep since she was born. At different times we have tried to change this practice, but it results if far more crying (and seemingly trauma) than any of us can stand. So I am nervous about the prospect of weaning her; how will she go to sleep at night or take a nap in the afternoon? Will she be more able to understand the process as she gets older or, as one of my girlfriends has advised, will it just get harder? What can I do to help my daughter (and myself) prepare for this major lifechange? I'm sure there are plenty of moms with great advice out there and I would love to hear it. Thanks!
