stopping Breast feeding

Hi Doc.

My baby is now 17 months, just breast feeding, I am too tired now and I want to stop! she does not drink any formula! If I am to stop bf now, what can I use to make sure that she does not lack any vitamins? what can I use to replace any lack or shortages of minerals and proteins? because I am trully tired............she also does not like any fresh milk or formula, but I do buy formula milk (NIDO) just to mix with her cereals or any food that requires milk. please advise me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nido is an excellent choice, but children of this age just love the new Parmalat follow on milk for children from 1 to 3 years. Try this.
