My dd will be 1 in two weeks and we're still nursing 4-5 times a day, including nights. She isn't sleeping through the night yet (which isn't a problem) but I'm hesistant to wean her (which I'm really not in a hurry to do, but just wondering) because I'm thinking it would still mean she would night wake. She has no interest in milk and could really use some more fat in her diet, as my milk isn't very fatty at all.
So I guess I'm wondering, should I just continue to nurse since it most likely won't help her sleep any better? I'm not opposed to breastfeeding til 18 months but I don't know that I could go much longer than that. Or is there some way to introduce milk? She won't take a bottle but does use a cup. My others had no problems going to cow's milk but they were on formula so I was able to slowly introduce it.

Keep in mind that weaning does not have to be all or nothing. If you are fine with the amount that she is nursing now, then don't change a thing! Some moms find they want to wean from night nursing, but continue to nurse during the day. chances are your milk has plenty of fat (you can't tell by looking at it)
I think you will find the info at Nutrition for Nursing Toddlers very helpful! Great info on cows milk.
