I've just started a new thread on this subject, I am going through it now and I am very sad to be stopping after 27 months. I almost wish my DS had shown signs of disinterest, he would have carried on forever if I hadn't taken steps to stop!

I remember feeling very sad. I was sad that I didn't know that it was the last feed when she stopped at 15 months. I felt like I should have marked it in some way.

Well done on getting to 13 months.

Thank you for your reassurance- she settled fine last night and slept through so it's just me that needs to adapt!

I found it sad. End of an era. There were times many many times it drove me insane but also some times where I don't think I've ever experienced anything like it.

I can promise u that all the next stages are as good and while u will remember it well, at 10 mths since I don't long for that with DD. We have more stuff now together.

I had mixed emotions when DD decided she was done with BFing at 15 months - I felt rejected yet liberated at the same time smile

Congratulations for feeding for that long and don't be surprised if she decides to start BFing again in a day or two with avengeance.

DD2 spent years not giving up wink

Not in same boat yet but my baby is nearly 1 and I'll be stopping then. Mixed feelings here too!

Aww congratulations in feeding so long! I'm not looking forward to the self weaning stage, but you never know she may go back to wanting to feed more next week wink

I'm not in the same boat at all but wanted to respond. Well done for getting to 13 months. I only managed 3 weeks.

Have bf my daughter for almost 13 months but the last week or so she has been less and less interested in feeding- more than happy to pull my hair, climb the headboard and generally have fun in the big bed! So tonight she's having milk in a beaker from her daddy. Very excited about this new stage but also a little sad such an amazing experience has drawn to a close. Anyone else feel like this?
