I think that my daughter is starting to wean. She will be one on the 22nd and during the day she just isn't really showing a lot of interest in nursing. Other than feel engorged I don't have a problem with her nursing less. But I'm worried that if she keeps decreasing her nursing sessions and isn't eating 3 square meals a day that she won't get everything she needs to stay healthy Between the ages of 1 and 2 how often would she need to nurse to get what she needs????
We have EBF for almost a year, she loves foods and her sippy cup now. She likes juices and tea, and kool aid. Choc milk sometimes too. Going to start keeping a sippy of water so she gets used to it. I'm terrified of baby led solids (I kind of freak out when she chokes ) I'm scared that the first time I give her a chunk of something that she is supposed to be able to have that she will choke and die and I can't stop thinking that everytime that someone tries to convince me to give her something. But she loves flavors. I blend things up in the bullet, and we mash what we can with a fork, or cut stuff up into small pieces.
Also, I was thinking about trying to cut down on the nighttime nursing, but I didn't want to take it all away. I don't know if it's any easier to cut back at night or to leave her be and let he choose. (I know DD2 wouldn't potty train for me, no matter what I tried, but when she was ready it was almost instant.) So when I think of trying to make her wean compared to letting her wean herself, I think of that and it makes me think that things go easier and more smoothly when allowed to go on their time.
I hope I'm making since. I starting to doze off
I am also going to start Birth control pills and didn't know if it could mess with our nursing relationship when it's already been a year....
