How did you wean your baby?

My dd is only 9 1/2 months so I have a little time before I start but I was wondering the best way to do it....anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
I'd like to have her weaned by July (she'll be a year and 2 months). I have a weekend trip planned away from her for the first time so that's kind of my goal date.

  • Drop one feeding a week... but know that a weekend trip does not have to mean weaning. She may refuse to nurse as a result when you get home (not as likely because of her age)... but she can certainly take substitute milk while you are gone and continue nursing when you get home.
