Ok, so I know I am totally jumping the gun here, but it is stressing me out just thinking about it! DH and I are planning on going on a cruise in May (4 nights) to celebrate his graduation. I am planning to at least partially wean when ds turns a year in April. At first I thought we would go on a cruise in July or so and I would have more time. but as it stands, ds will be just shy of 13 months! I don't want weaning to be stressful for him or me. I do plan to gently do mother led weaning, but super gently adn I am not opposed to keeping a couple of feedings a day (1-2, 3 max!) but how will this work with me going away? I don't plan to bf for much longer after that, but wanted to give him at least a few months more if I could . . . Will I have to wean him completely before I go? or would it work for me to just pumo 2X a day while I am gone? I really dont want to pump all day every day I am gone, but a couple of times is okay. I know I am rambling, sorry! Thanks for your help ladies! I don't have any friends who have done extended bf, so no one else to ask. thanks!
