Re: Stopping BFing.
My friend weaned her daughter by replacing one feeding a week with yogurt smoothies that she was making. You could do that with bottles of formula and slowly transition from nursing to the bottle.
I agree with mommal though - solids are just for fun until one. Breastmilk and/or formula should make up the majority of their diet for the first year.
I always wore an underwire nursing bra and am now mostly wearing non-nursing bras even with my baby nursing.
