I want to start weaning my 10 month old before she turns 11 months and be done with breastfeeding by the time she is a year (in June). My goal was 6 months but she loved it so much I didn't want to stop but now that she is getting older it seems to be even harder to wean her. She Loves her Boobies. LOL! I feel guilty for taking them away from her but she is biting constantly and I am always sore, and frankly I'm a little tired of breastfeeding. I give her formula every once and a while and she will drink it but she wont sleep with it. She needs the breast to sleep. We have been co-sleeping and I want her to start sleeping in her bed also but I know that wont happen till I wean her completely. I know you are supposed slowly switch her feeding every few days but that really isn't working for us. Does anyone have any suggestions on weaning and how I can get my baby to sleep without having to nurse her (Other then letting her just cry it out... I'm not really a fan of that!)?
