When did you start to wean your baby off the boob? My son is 11 months and strictly breastfed. I need to start thinking about getting him on whole milk! He wakes up so much during the night to nurse still and I need help.

If your son is almost 1, I'd suggest weaning towards real foods vs milk. Children after 1 don't technically need milk, especially if they are receiving nutrients elsewhere.

I start to wean around 1-1.5 years old. By this time my girls are eating 3x a day along with snacks.

You can start whole milk after 12 months & start by mixing it with breastmilk. Put more breastmilk than milk in the beginning then slowly increase the amount of whole milk as baby tolerates it.

I feel your pain! My little guy nursed until around 18 months and the nighttime feedings were the WORST. Around 16 months I stopped nursing him at naptime and shortly after that he lost interest in night time feedings! I would definitely recommend cutting out naptime feedings if he still nurses then & maybe that will help you get some sleep at least!

They can have dairy from a year on. My daughter stopped nursing on her own at nine months. She is supplemented with formula but will be changed to whole milk at a year old.

My son kind of weaned himself just before age 2. If you don't have to wean them, they will let you know when they are ready.
