Re: refusing cows milk
Nora never did take cows milk from me (still doesn't). I didn't worry about replacing my BM at day care because we were still nursing quite frequently when we were together and she ate a lot of calcium rich foods (cheese, yogurt, etc). I went ahead and stopped pumping at a year- before she really drank much cow's milk. They continued to offer CM at day care and eventually she started drinking it (I don't know when, since I only know she drinks it because I've seen pictures).
