Induction and Partial Breastfeeding?
I am finally starting to wean my baby. We are slowly removing one feeding at a time and replacing it with a meal. He is 11 months. So he gets three nursing sessions per day and the rest of his nourishment is from solid foods and a little regular whole milk (approved by doctor).

Do you think it would be safe to start the Induction phase of Atkins? I am sooooooooooo ready to be done with this weight. I tried intermittent fasting but I just couldn't stick it out.

Absolutely! At 11 mo, he is probably getting most of his nutrients from food. You will still be able to nurse as needed but if you are starting the weaning process now anyway, I see no reason to hold off on induction.

I nursed both of my little ones till 3 1/2 doing low carb a lot of that time. When my first was an infant, I was very low carb until he was around nine months old. I do think that losing a lot of weight rapidly could be an issue in terms of what sorts of toxins you're liberating when you're burning that fat, but I don't see any other issues of concern.
