My baby girl will be 1 on sat (I can't believe it, time has went by so fast), I am wanting to start the weaning process. I had planned to do it slowly and at first cut down/& eventually out the pumping at work. However today when I think about it, I get a little sad. I know this may sound selfish but I am ready to be free from pumping at work and have a little time to myself, but on the other side, I feel like I am going to be lost. Sometimes I am all ready for the weaning & other times I am not . I also think that we have already started the process because she doesn't seem to want her mommy as much at least in that way. I guess my questions are, how can I tell if she is actually starting to wean, and how do you be strong during weaning. I want to take it slow, but will she just eventually forget about it and not want it or will I have to be strong and say no or not give in??
