Re: Confused about weaning....
Your supply will be fine if you want to continue nursing when you are together. Many moms pump wean at 1 year old, but continue to nurse for as long as they wish. Past a year, your supply is well established and regulated to be there when you need it (even on weekends ).
It sounds to me like you're maybe not entirely clear yourself on how you want to proceed with nursing. And that's okay! You made it to a year, which is amazing. If you feel strongly that that is enough and you want to start down the road toward weaning, don't offer, don't refuse is a gentle way to do that. If you want to just continue as you are now and see what happens a month, 3 months, 6 months, a year from now, that's great too! This is definitely a good age to start making nursing more of a 2-way street, meaning you can start setting limits and teaching nursing etiquette. Though, it may be a few months before your baby is developmentally able to really understand and consistently stick to it.
Breastmilk continues to provide an excellent source of nutrition as well as numerous immunological and emotional benefits to your baby well into the second year (and more) of life. The American Association of Pediatricians recommends breastfeeding continue at least through the first year and as long afterward as desired by mother and child. The World Heath Organization recommends nursing for at least the first two years and as long afterward as mutually desired. So there is certainly no rule saying you MUST wean at a year and there are many benefits to continuing. The key is to do so in a way you and baby are both comfortable with and feel is sustainable.
