Re: How to wean?
i think you need to decide what you actually want. because you can set limits and get more sleep and rest without weaning. and at 1 she is likely still getting a lot of nutrition from all that nursing not to mention easing her teething pain (particularly at night, those molars and canines are a ******). there are lots of good reasons to nurse past 1. but if weaning is what you want, then you've done an amazing job and she will be ok if you transition over to all solids. if you're a cow milk drinker then you might want to start her on that. and yes, particularly in the winter, she might be nursing at night so much because she's thirsty, and having a sippy of water by her that she can get when she wants might help a lot.
