Hi all. My daughter is almost one year old, and I'm thinking of weaning her from breastmilk. How did other mamas deal with this?
1) What did you replace breastmilk with? Goats milk? Cows milk? Why choose one type over the other? I don't have easy access to raw milk, and I'm not sure I'm ready to take the risks associated with it (for her sake), though on the occasions I've had it, I've enjoyed it.
2) How do you transition the feedings? Do you replace an afternoon feeding session with [cow/goat/other] milk? Did you mix it with breastmilk?
3) Did you continue to pump once or twice a day so that the baby could still have some of your milk (immune benefits) but wasn't relying on you for milk (i.e., takes goat/cow/other milk as primary liquid for fat and calcium content)?
This whole process feels mysterious to me right now. I haven't found anything particularly useful online.
Thanks in advance.
