This is my third baby, and the first that I've managed to b.f. for an entire year! I wanted to make it a year with the other two, but only managed for 6 months w/ Alan & 9 months w/ Lizzy. This baby doesn't even know what formula tastes like. :-) Now, we're finally going to start weaning. It'll be hard, though, cuz she barely knows how to use a bottle or snippy.

Oh, many reasons; she bites, scratches and claws, for one! Plus, I'm so ready to have my body back to myself, I need to start dieting so I can lose this baby weight, she needs to learn to sleep in her own bed, which I don't think she'll do as long as she's nursing, etc... We're going at it gradually, though.

well nursing wont teach her to sleep in her own bed.
YOu need to teach nursing manners- you can look them up on kellymom too
Plus I would encourage you to research the benefits of nursing past one year on kellymom. THere are so many benefits for you and baby. Letting her decide when to wean will be easiest for all.
I understand wanting to lose the weight but that can be done at any point.

I meant to say stopping nursing.

Congrats for making it a year! Know that now that you've reached a yr you call the shots. You can tell her not now, you can nightwean, etc. if you still choose to wean, it won't be easy or tear free but remember for your health to go slow. Drop one feeding per week until all are gone
