Just wondering when/how you know that BFing is over? When do stop offering?
DD2 is 13 months and for the the last couple of weeks has fed infrequently, if at all. She was feeding morning and night (although she has been skipping the night one fairly frequently for about a month).
Do I just stop offering?
She won't drink milk in any form from any container...
She eats plenty of solids though and gets plenty of dairy.
All so different from DD1, I decided when to wean her and she still has a bottle of milk now at 3+!!

DS1 self-weaned at just on 15 months. He was morning and night, and dropped the night one (wouldn't take it). Then a few weeks later, the morning feed was getting shorter and shorter. Finally, I was struggling to get him to latch, and he was just pulling away.
I realised it had been a few days in a row of me fighting him to feed and him staying on for a minute or two, so I stopped offering. He never asked again (until his new baby brother was born, but even then, he was interested in the theory not the practice.)
He also was not drinking cows milk. We just gave lots of cheese and natural yoghurt especially. We always offered sips of cows milk. About 4 months later he got a taste for cows milk, and now has a very very small cup in the morning and evening.
I wouldn't worry too much about their milk consumption - weaning after 12 months means giving up milk as the primary source of food - that their solid food diet is adequate to meet their needs. After 12 months you don't wean onto cows milk or formula - you just wean!
