I need some advice. Our baby is just shy of 14 months, and she is a light eater and drinker. I'm still nursing her about 4 times in a 24 hour period (a little more since she's teething now), and I'd like to stop nursing. I use a "don't ask, don't offer" policy right now and end up nursing her mostly before her naps and bed. I'd like to stop doing that but the problem is that despite many months of trying, she's just not interested in drinking from a cup. I've tried many, many cups and she can drink from them and sometimes does, but she doesn't drink enough liquids to keep herself hydrated. She just doesn't guzzle milk like other babies her age. She seems to like kefir the best, and water, so that's what I give her, but her liquid intake doesn't seem like it's enough for me to stop nursing and I'm not sure if I should just wait it out...seems there's no choice! Thanks.
