My dd is 9 1/2 mo and I intend to continue BF at least until she is 12 mo, but after that I am soooooo ready to ween.... thing is I'm not sure she will be.... she barely drinks an ounce of water outta a sippy cup a day... I asked others in my family (dh and my mom mainly) to help her practice with the cup more, but I guess finding time is hard :-/ or they just give up cuz they get the same reaction i do.... she sips a couple sips and then either wants to chew on the other side of the cup or throw it! what can I do to prepare her now to help her more softly ween in a couple months?Answer Question

My daughter self-weaned at 23 months. The World Health Organization, operating without the influences of the dairy, formula and porn industries (unlike American doctors) recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of 24 months.
A great book / website is www.babyledweaning.com Baby Led Weaning
