Don't stress. If she is 12 months she can survive without a drink of cows milk. Go out and have some fun!

I would try not to stress about it too much, My Dd is almost one and only has 1-2 bottles of milk a day, that she could go without if for some reason she didn't want it at the time.
Have you tried giving it to her in a cup cold? My Dd will drink anything from a cup (I think it's a novelty).

I bf my 14 month old between 2-4 a day generally (mostly 4).
She eats solid like a champion.
I don't think there is a wrong or a right answer.
As long as the pair of you are happy doing what you are doing Id say it's right for you.

Yeah she drinks cold milk throughout the day fine.
I will get to go out sooner or later vicpark lol and when I do it will be awesome haha.
Well tonight I got a drink of milk for her and my mum fed it to her. Didn't drink much but still had a bit. I'm not so worried now about that so I guess wait to see how it goes when I'm bot around lol :-)

I just weaned my 18 month old. Stopped night feeds first, introduced the morning feed of cows milk (first thing, when she woke up - 5 ounces) once she got a taste for it, I just waited for her cues. She kind off refused the breast a couple of weeks ago on her own (I was a bit sad, but I guess she was ready)
I, for one, believe that bubs can be breastfed as long as they want it, but as a supplement to their solids once over 12 months of age.
And no, she won't need formula at night, if she's eating well during the day, her night feeds are probably only for the comfort it brings her.

I also wouldn't worry about if she drinks the cow's milk. My demand breast fed 16 month old can go all day without a feed if I'm not around. As long as she's drinking water and eating food I'm not worried. She makes up for it with lots of boobie when I'm back!!

Woohoo! Successfully left bub over night! She went to sleep 8pm woke at 9:30pm for 15mins then went back to sleep and stayed asleep until 7am. We went without a night time and morning feed as well. Boobs were so sore the next day.
Thanks for all your reassurance though it helped me feel more relaxed!
