My youngest is almost 11 months and I'll be introducing cow's milk soon and switching her from breastmilk....my biggest fear right now is the fact that every night I nurse her to sleep. I'm not a fan of cry it out, so any tips on how to get her to sleep without the breast??

She might surprise you! Mine did. She clung to me ALL day and nursed every hour (even through the night up until 10.5 months old) and one night....just after she turned 1....she didn't latch on when I offered. She still nursed in the day, but not at bedtime. Within a couple weeks she fully weaned herself. GL!

Oh I also wanted to add that we still cuddled at bed time....only instead of laying on the boppy, she sat on my lap and we got to read "night night" books. She was pretty excited about hearing the stories :o) Maybe that will help distract your daughter.

you may need dad to step in and take over at night time. how far along are you? many moms will actually dry up during pregnancy. if you do, then you won't have to worry about weaning, the pregnancy will have done it for you.
