Re: 11 mo old away from Mom all day
Mama, only two night wakings for an 11 month old is AWESOME. Honestly, consider yourself lucky.
It does suck that your DH is talking about weaning and his idea that your baby will wean in one day is so far from realistic it almost made me laugh. That said, I don't think it would be all that bad, if you don't have enough breastmilk or can't nurse on breaks, to give your 11 month old some cow's milk tomorrow. You're close enough to an age that he could safely have it. It isn't a sufficient replacement for breastmilk or formula just yet, but for one day it wouldn't hurt anything and might help keep him happy and fill in the gaps. Assuming he'll even drink it. My daughter never would.
