I'm not ready to start the process for a few more months, but have been thinking about it a lot lately. I plan on transistioning to just pumping shortly after DS's first birthday and still giving him breastmilk as long as possible during the second year, but will still need to wean and was interested in knowing how some of you went about making the transistion.

Was it at all tramatic for you or your LO? Was it something that you took your time taking over a period of weeks/months, or did you use a more cold turkey approach? Any advice or tricks your found to work wonders?
