Hi! My daughter is 11 mos old. I currently breastfeed in the morning and at bedtime and pump at work during the day. She takes two 3-4 oz of breastmilk at daycare (although sometimes its less and sometimes outright refuses a bottle). I want to start weaning once she turns 1. I fear the bedtime feed is a comfort thing for her when I start to wean. We used to do bottle at bedtime when she was around 3 mos and she was super fussy so then i switched to breastfeeding, and at the same time did sleep training, and haven't gone back to a bottle once she started sleeping through the night. Also, there are times when she's practically falling asleep during the bedtime feed.
1) What do I do for the bedtime and morning weans? Do I offer her a bottle instead? I'm also trying to transition out of bottles into sippy cups. Do I give her a sippy cup of milk?
2) What do I do if she refuses the milk or is fussy? I'm particularly concerned for bedtime since nursing was a way to calm/settle her for bedtime.
