All moms, I need help. My son will be a year old October 19, 2010. I am still nursing him but He knows how take a cup and can drink out of a straw, you know the usual at 12 months. I am not sure if I should continue nursing past a year... I am very worried over a couple things:
Ruger (my baby), still does not sleep through the night. I have had countless people tell me that its because I am not giving him enough real food... Well, I just tell them that I can only give him what he will eat, I am not going to force food into his mouth because then he will relate eating to unhappiness- you get what I'm saying? But, I am worried that if I stop nursing him after a year, he will be lacking nutrients because he doesn't eat a lot of foods. A lot of people also tell me that I should have stopped nursing by now, and I need to after a year. I don't know what I should do. I just want the best for my son, so he can be the happiest, healthiest little boy. Any suggestions?
