Okay, I'm thinking way ahead. I'm not planning on weaning anytime soon. However, the fact is I am in the Air Force and there is always the possibility I could have to be away from my family. I will not be going anywhere while I'm in the class I'm in now, but when I finish Levi will be about 20 months old. When I finish I will need to go to another 6 week-long class at some point in the following months, and that will mean being away from Levi for that time.
I have seen threads before for people asking for advice on this, but haven't seen many success stories. Anybody been through this before? Of course I want the process to be as gentle as possible if I do have to wean him in a short time.
