DS is nearly one and I am planning to stop BFing soon. We currently just have a morning and bedtime feed. He dropped the others of his own accord - he's never been much of a 'booby' baby (IYSWIM). (I know I could wait for him to drop it of his own accord too but TBH his top teeth are really hurting me now and I will be glad to stop.)
I don't think dropping the morning one will be much of problem but the bedtime one is part of our routine and has been since he was born. He sometimes feeds to sleep, sometimes not (in which case he usually falls asleep happily on his own in 10 minutes or so) so that's not a problem.
Should I start introducing a cup of cow's milk? (He's never taken a bottle and also refused all attempts at FFing!) I'd be interested to hear how it went for people when they stopped this last feed.
Thanks! He does already drink from a cup (in a fairly gulpy, tipping it over his head sort of way) and he'll take a bit of cow's milk (has to be very creamy Jersey at the moment, fussy little beggar) but not very much.
Am also interested as to whether he is likely to be upset by the change in routine ie no more BFing. How did people manage this transition (or am I over-thinking this massively?!)
She wasn't upset by it at all, artifarti - if she had been, I'd have changed & dropped the morning feed, or delayed until she was a bit older. It just seemed the right thing to do at the right time and we were both happy with it.
