Re: 1 year - no end to pumping in sight
Yeah, I am also surprised that you were warned off of pump-weaning at 12 months! At this point, you can make up gaps in your child's breastmilk intake with solids, or with whole goat's/cow's milk in a bottle or sippy if your LO isn't yet that interested in solids.
Sounds like the ladies at your meeting are pretty hard-core... Not that that is a bad thing, but it can be tough on mamas who don't feel like signing up for that approach! You've done an awesome job pumping until a year, and I don't think you should feel bad about throttling back at this point.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
