    With DD1, at about 13-14 months I think. With DD2, I still pump about 3 times a week (she's 17.5 months old).

    Did you replace with cow's milk?

    I stopped pumping around 18 months. And nope, I never replaced with cow's milk. I don't drink it, and Em didn't care for it. She still doesn't drink milk but eats plenty of dairy so I don't worry about it.

    I, actually, don't give her anything to drink at all at home but water. It's what I drink and what she drinks. I love it when she tells people, "I'll have water." It makes me with pride.

    With DD1, we did introduce cow's milk but she wasn't that into it (she had started rejecting the bottle at about 10 months and was not that interested in the sippy either). She also drank/drinks soy milk, water, and minimal juice (diluted). She was still bfing about 4 times per day (from when I got home from work until leaving for work the next day-still night waking at that time) for several months so we didn't worry too much about what she was drinking during the day.
    DD2 has not had cow's milk yet.

    How often are you nursing when you're together? as long as you are nursing your toddler 3-4 times in a 24 hour period there is no need to offer cows (or any other type of) milk How is her solid intake? I think it's more about how many other ways is she getting calories/nutrients, kwim?

    DD will drink bm from a sippy. She just turned 1 yesterday, so we havent tried cows milk yet. She only gets 1 or 2 bottles of expressed milk in the evenings Monday thru Friday. I have no problem continuting to pump, I was just curious as to when others did and what they replaced bm with when they stopped.

    Pump weaned when DS was 16 mo old.

    I'd been sending EBM in sippies to preschool and he was only drinking 1 or 2 oz so continuing to pump seemed pretty pointless.

    DS is allergic to cows milk, so he drinks soy milk when all the other LO are getting cows milk.

    I just stopped at about 14-15 months. I was so torn on whether or not to stop but figured we were both ready then. We do not give CM yet. She just drinks water during the day. She still nurses a lot when we ar together though.

    We are still nursing a ton during the day too. I work PT in the evenings, so that is the only time that she is getting the expressed milk.
