Is it necessary to stop right now?  Like, because you are going back to work or something?  Lots of people breast feed longer than 13 months.

Maybe you could go away for a couple of days....

I started weaning my son at 12 months and he wasn't completely weaned until 18 months. It goes easier on both of you if you do it slowly. I started be taking out one feeding and then a week or two later another, the last feeding I did away with last was his before bed feeding.

For me, I dropped about one feeding per week.  Offer regular milk and just don't nurse at a meal or something.

Like the other posters said - go slow. Do what is right for your family.

Congrats on being pregnant!  Hope you are feeling well!  What you are explaining with trying to wean does not sound like fun for anyone. Is there anyone else that can offer milk to your little one?  Do you offer regular milk warmed in a bottle?  we did that with my 2 yr old when she was weaned and it was not an issue.  Of course, i was out of town and the bottles were given by my husband, not me.
