  • Ava's almost 9 months old now, and the thought of weaning her is in the back of my mind.
     
    I don't plan on weaning until she's a year, but I just wanted to know any of your experiences with it. Did you go straight to cow's milk? How did you start the process? TIA!

  • We still haven't weaned here
     
    He does drink cow's milk though and doesn't nurse as often, we just kept offering it to him.
     
    I don't really know how to wean though sorry, I am not much help.

  • I am planning on weaning around 11 months. We will start by offering cow's milk here and there with his solids next month sometime.
     
    Good Luck weaning.

  • My children have self weaned for one reason or anohter, SO i have never reallly weaned a child. but i can tell you that my friend has weaned 2 children, and she idd it by cuttingt he sleepy time feeds first. one at a time, that way the baby didnt associate nursing with going to sleep, she said it was pretty easy after that. Good luck

  • I am going to let my dd self-wean as long as my health holds out. So far she is almost 14 months and going strong.
     
    I think you would probably start offering something else to replace one feeding per day, and then gradually replace more nursing time with the cup. I don't recommend going to a bottle as a 1 year old can handle a sippy cup just fine.
