    Default weaning when your on antidepressants

    I am on antidepressants and was in my pregnancy. Does that mean that when I am weaning that my dd is weaning off antidepressants? I thought less than 1% was passed through the bm.

    I am weaning my 18 month old b/c I am so tired with this pregnancy and the Dr. said it is b/c I am bf too. She still ask for milk pretty often and I am trying to get her down to two feedings. Nighttime is the hardest for her and lately she is acting angry at me.

    Can your husband help out during these times? 18 months is tricky because they don't exactly understand what's going on. However, I think it's reasonable at 18 months to try and wean down to 2 times a day. How is her solids intake?

    She eats a lot more solids if she is not bf much. But she loves to bf and asks to nurse like six or seven times a day. Its hard to tell her no but I do sometimes or offer her a cup. She does not like cow milk.
