I have an 11 month old and due to our difficult and sometimes tramatic breastfeeding realationship I am starting to think about weaning.
This is my second child, but my first child self weaned at 10 months so I really have no idea how to go about weaning. In fact, even though I pumped from the time she was 10 months until she hit a year, I still had trouble weaning from the pump. I backed off one session a week from her birthday, and by the third week I had mastitis.
With my second, she is showing no signs of ever wanting to stop nursing. Even though I pump and feed her expressed milk for three of her feedings during the day, she is extremely attached to me and always ready to nurse in the mornings and the evenings.
I am concerned about getting mastitis again as well as making things difficult on my little one. What is the best way to make this as easy as possible for both of us?
