Self weaning: She may be ready to wean, but you don't have to stop totally. You can continue to nurse her when she will, and feed her baby food and pumped breast milk if you still have it, or a formula of your choice. At this age, she may even take the sippy cup and you may not have to use the bottle at all. Don't stress, don't force her to nurse, and don't feel guilty for not nursing her longer. Enjoy her!
