I had to "cold turkey" wean my dd at 15 months so I could go on some medication. We tried for several weeks to nurse while I was taking it but she had an allergic reaction to it. :-(

I had stopped pumping when she was around 11/12 months so I had long run through my freezer stash. I hadn't ever thought of storing it up for her in case I needed to wean. I'll definitely keep that in mind though for baby #3.
