Almost done EBF (weaning advice)

I am almost to my goal of EBF for 12 months! I may go longer, but in case I decide to be done, what advice did you find most helpful when you were weaning? Did you quit cold turkey or go gradually? What helped baby cope? What helped you cope physically and emotionally?

I tried quitting cold turkey once and it was so hard on both of us and I was so, so sad. The thought of that bonding experiencing being over broke my heart. Hopefully this time it will be a little easier! Thanks in advance!
