My Mood:
To Wean or Not to Wean. I'm so torn.

Hey mamas!

I am currently nursing my 1 y.o. DS about 3 or 4 times a day. Morning, naps, and bedtime.

I'm returning to work on Wednesday and am so torn.

I work days and nights, so some mornings he will go to daycare before i get home from my night shift and will be in bed by the time i get home from my day shift.

I only work part time (about 10 shift a month)

I feel like I will confuse him if I stick to our nursing schedule 3/4 of the time and expect him to do without nursing 1/4 of the time.

My DD weaned naturally about 3 months after I returned to work and I think it was because of the inconsistent schedule.

What would you do? Will he get used to the schedule?

Important points:

*he drinks homo milk with meals
*he WILL NOT take a bottle
*my mom, DH or Daycare will be caring for him while I am at work
