Sophia is now 11 mos, and we've had a great BFing relationship so far (except for acid reflux and nursing strikes around the 3 mo. point).

Congrats! I got pregnant with our 2nd when our first was about the same age as your Sophia. :)

For us, the only thing I did was do some night-weaning when she was about a year old, as I was totally touched out. But your nipples may hurt and you may get frustrated with nursing, but each time you do, it will pass. It really will. I'm at 33+ weeks now and I can tell you it does get better.

The only real issue I had was with the diapers when my colostrum came in. Colostrum for Isabella (and this happened with 2 of my friends too) made her dirty diapers runny. She could eat applesauce and bananas all day and wouldn't get constipated. :)

When my milk started to drop (and it doesn't for everyone!), I just made sure Isabella had enough access to extra water. She loves yogurt and cheese, so that wasn't an issue. We don't do cow's milk, but if you do, you can just up Sophia's access to that.

So you don't need to wean. It may or may not happen that she'll drop feedings. Maybe she'll nurse more often. :) For us, Isabella dropped to nursing at night before going to sleep (although she doesn't always nurse to sleep now); nursing before nap (though not always to sleep); and sometimes when she woke up.

Now, she'll nurse a little more often, but nothing like she used to. :)
