I have just come over the 12 month mark, and besides being amazed that a year has passed already and how much my little baby has grown, I'm also amazed that I am still breast feeding.
My question where to from here....stems from the fact that no one in my family or friendship circle ever breast fed past 3 or 6 months and I'm looking for some options. (or some answers to give them as they all seem to want to know my plan, and i don't have one is starting to run thin :-))
We co-sleep and she only night nurses.....during the day she drinks bottle as I'm at work. (Gave up on pumping after 8 months.) I was thinking of weaning her completely as lately she's been very fussy at night and i worry that my supply is dwindling. Could it be why she some nights want to drink every hour? But i must admit i do enjoy the ease that comes with co-sleeping and breast feeding.
Then I've also been wondering if co-sleeping now doesn't mean that she'll be in our bed forever..... I read somewhere that changing patterns for toddlers are much worse and i worry that i'm just making it harder for her later by preferring it for my sake now...
Should i be considering night weaning or should i have some target?? Should I have a plan on whether she'll be using her beautiful cot sometime soon or just relax in the knowledge that I enjoy having her around at night....
