Re: Not sure whether to wean or not- almost 14 mo
i think babies, around this age, get really distracted and have a lot going on during the day. so they stop nursing as much. but nursing is so important to me that i keep offering and encourage night nursing, not just for the nutrition but primarily: nursing is hands down the best mothering tool i have. it makes MY life so. much. easier. i am not willing to give that up just because DS is busy during the day! now, i work away from home too, so it's actually made my life amazingly easier not having to pump while i'm away, but having that time to reconnect through nursing when i'm home is really important.
cows milk is not superior nutrition to your milk; not only will you still have to think about how much he's getting, you'll have to be careful he doesn't get too much (there's an upper limit the GI tract can handle at this age).
i also think, from reading more experienced mamas, night weaning is not related to night waking; if you wean, you just lose the easiest way to get him back down.
my 2 cents!
Nursing, pumping, cloth-diapering, babywearing, working professor mama with the awesomest SAHD ever.
