The dreaded word. Andrew turns one on August 25th. That's a little over a month away. My GOAL was to have him finished with his daily breastfeeding from me (because currently his schedule is: 7:30a, 12:00p, 4:15p, 8:00p, 3a) so I realize that it might be hard to cut some of the evening/night feedings down. I want him to be on breastmilk until he is one, and maybe a tad longer. He knows the sippy cup brings drink, but I really don't know if he's going to sit and down 4 ounces of Momma milk from it in one sitting. He usually just chews on the nubby part (and yes, I have the valve out because Andrew isn't interested in sucking out of the cup and I want him to learn that cup = pour not cup = suck).
Any other breastfeeding moms have advice for what worked for them? Oh, and I have a ton of milk in my deep freezer, so I have that to use up (I'd like to use up what I can, whatever is still good, and then switch to whole cow's milk).
All of this garble translated: my baby is addicted to the boob. Help!
