I am starting to think ahead and the weaning process (10 months old). I am a teacher and are off for the summer. I have been pumping at 9:30 and 12:30. He has been feeding at the babysitter at 11:30 and 2:30. I have plenty of frozen milk I can use...so it is not as though he would be 'off BM'. My question is..do I feed him at those times (well around those times) or give him the bottle? I want to be done BF at 12 months by the time I go back to school, his birthday is 8-11. I know the emotional part of doesn't want to be done, but the physical part does, and don't want to pump at school next year (until a 2nd).
Can you give me ideas of what and how to wean? I am just very confused as to how to do this. I know not to stop cold turkey, and to do it gradually. But when/how?
