I am wanting to start the weaning process so that by the time my lo turns one (she is currently 11 months) we will be down to nursing in the morning and before bedtime. She has teeth and nursing has become painful because she will bite me! We had a meeting about this and I thought she got the memo but recently it has started back up. Today she broke the skin on my right nipple so now when she latches it is very painful and I dread feeding her from that side but I know I have to so as to not cause engorgement or clogged ducts.
How can I start this? Should I give her pumped milk for one of her naps during the day? If I do that I would still have to pump so how will that help my breasts if they still think there is a feeding when there isn't.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
