So my daughter is 15 months today and we went for her well baby check up. She gained .4 pounds in the last month or two. I was told after 12 months she really wouldn't benefit from breastfeeding any longer an would need more than my milk. Since she was 12 months old I have introduced both whole milk and soy. She really likes the whole milk now but it has taken a couple months. At 14 months I introduced baby meats. She had been eating sweet potatoes, peas and other such baby foods from around 12 months and didn't take to them. She has taken to the meat and really prefers stage 2. Stage 3 she doesn't eat well, it gags her and I assume its because of the chunks. Today at the docs office her pediatrician told me that I need to stop breastfeeding at night since she would wine and I would feed her. Besides once during the day, night is usually the only time she feeds. Are we ready to just stop? Have I introduced enough food?Answer Question

Our daughter is the same age as yours. And honestly she has been weaned since her first birthday. She loves whole milk, she eats basically everything we eat and she has been doing well. I think from what you've introduced to her she would do just fine.
