You're not alone! I couldn't imagine my lo getting anything else for a while. Weaning is harder on mom I think... Just go as slowly as you need to. Breast milk will give her what she needs for as long as you give it to her. You can supplement her diet with other foods.

You can still breastfeed while giving whole milk. You should only be giving 500ml a day (16oz) of whole milk. So if your baby wants to eat more that two 8oz bottles then you'll be able to BF.

I switched cold turkey when my son was around 11 months. I had no issues, if it helps warm up the regular milk and mix it with breast milk to help with the transition.

yes I warm up milk for my 11 month old. He's adjusted fine to it. I introduced it to him when he turned 10 months I think

It is! And I didn't think it would be. A couple weeks ago I couldn't wait and now I'm on the fence

I was told to start with an oz then move up every few days along as baby does alright with it and I mixed it with the formula. So day one would be 6oz of formula 1oz milk

I believe if you love the bonding and just don't want to stop, why would you? There is no hard mom rule stating you have to stop at 12 months. If you go to 15 mos that is what you and your baby need. Sometimes it not just just for nourishment but for bonding.
