I was there! I got pregnant when my son was 11 months old. He was a full time nurser at that age ( I introduced solids when he was about 12 months) so weaning wasn't even a possibility so quickly.
My suggestion is to take weaning slowly and get the book "Adventures in Tandem breastfeeding" or borrow it. It souds like you want to wean, but even still this book is really helpful. As far as night weaning check out http://www.drjaygordon.com/ and look under night weaning or something like that. He has some very useful tips! Do you bedshare? For us we continued to bedshare when we were night weaning and then worked on getting my son in his own bed. If you need to message me about any questions you have please feel free :) congrats on your pregnancy!
Quoting jarynsmom06:I would just let her wean on her own. A lot of times your milk goes away and they lose interest, however if she is fond of nursing, weaning her before she is ready may be hard on her. JMO
thats very true. Weaning for us was very difficult for my son, especially my first son. For my experience my milk was going away, however my son still nursed as frequently (he was very attached to nursing) but he sure did eat a lot more solids!
