hi
i have a very demanding 11 month old...he'll be starting daycare next month and they want me to wean him by the time he starts...i have started the process of weaning..we're down to one early morning feeding, and then nursing b4 his 3 daily naps and b4 bed...he takes sippy cups of rice milk and eats regular food..
i just dont know what to substitute the b4 bed/nap feedings with...he is a very head strong baby who will cry forever...im also nervous about the daycare thing, im sure he will adjust but i dont want it to be too hard on the both of us :(

replace it with story/cuddle time with a bottle or sippy cup. Good luck with the daycare!!

it is actually a really good daycare..i have no worries at all about the quality of care ;)
my sis-in-law works in the baby room, so she will be my sons teacher...she simply said that the transition would probably be smoother if he was weaned (he's breastfed). since he is so used to nursing and then going to sleep in his crib, im just thinking that naptime is gonna be very stressful for him when he's in daycare. plus i want to wean him, as he is about to turn 1 year old...

Not sure if I've understood but do you mean they want you to wean him off breastmilk or formula? I would tell them to go jump actually - no one can tell you when to wean your child and I can't see what the big problem is with them having to feed him whatever is in the bottle. If they are a decent childcare they will be flexible about his care requirements.
