I decided that I wanted to finish breastfeeding by the time Charlie was one. Our pediatrician said we could start milk by 11 months. So he now drinks milk with breakfast, lunch, and dinner! He's done so well with the transition, and while he doesn't drink his entire cup full, he never tries to nurse and it doesn't seem like we're missing anything. It's two weeks until his birthday and I have two feedings left to give up- first thing in the morning, and right before bed.
I'm not ready to give up the bedtime one yet- he's been such a finicky sleeper from day one and I don't want to mess with the 11 hour stretch we've got going!
But wait... I'm not ready to give up the morning one yet either... he wakes up around 6:30 and usually the only energy I can muster is to plop him into bed with me and nurse him/sleep until we're both a little more awake and a little less crabby.
