Hi, I'm Amber and a first time mom to my little miracle baby, Grace. I always knew I wanted to BF her for a year, and am currently in the process of weaning her. Most of her feedings she dropped on her own (every 2 hours to every 4 hours, then 4 times a day, then 3 times a day) and just recently I've started weaning her from her afternoon nursing. So far, so good. She's been introduced to whole milk now and has that in place of the boob in the afternoon. I have definitely noticed some clingyness, but she doesn't seem to adversley affected by the change.

I plan on giving her a few more days, and then I will attempt to wean her from her morning feeding. After a week or so of that, I will drop the night feeding and should be officially weaned.

I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about it. Some days I am so ready to be done (the biting, though occasional, is so not fun.) At other times I know I will miss the bonding time with her. Mostly I think I'm ready to move on though, which is why I'm working on actively weaning her now.

Anywho, that's us! I look forward to getting to know you all and finding some much needed weaning support!

Thank you Fiona! It does look like our babies are very close, just a few weeks difference! How are you feeling about the first birthday coming up?

I'm confused by the March PR siggy, did Grace come early?
