I have EBF Dd who is 11 months apart from sippy cup specially in hot weatheror odd bottle of formula when I at work. She seems to be slowly loosing interest in breastfeeding even tho the weather is so hot. She hardly had any breast feeds at all Saturday as I was out most of the day and when I returned she just wasn't interested I think maybe she enjoyed her new found independence? She had a bit of a better day yesterday , however if we are out and about with a lot going on she doesn't feed during the day and may wake up once in the night for a feed.
I am going away at the beg of next month for a week with some friends and their children and I know she will not want to breastfeed with all the action going on around her. It's not really option to keep sneaking off to feed in a quiet place as its a beach and pool / entertainment party and I have 2 older children so I can't drag them off too as it's unfair. Do you think I would be better off to start weaning now before holiday ? I feel very sad about it but I don't want to feel sad when I'm away as it will be terrible when I should be enjoying myself. I also think my supply is diminishing probably with the heat and her age etc. when we are together she would have around 4 feeds a day when we have others around us she only has 1 -2 feeds if that.

Don't think your supply will be disminishing, after 11 months it should be pretty robust.

How do you feel? Do you want to continue or do you want to stop? If you aren't sure, have you thought about talking this through with a BFC?

Not really thought about talking it through . I enjoy feeding her but it will all go haywire on holiday so Im not sure what to do about that really .

It will probably reduce or even stop on holiday. How you go on from there is entirely upto you though smile
