Hi

I've been getting really tired in the last week since I stopped feeding dd a week ago. I did it gradually, last week was stopping the night feed which was the last feed. I've been exhausted, is that normal or is it unrelated?

I wonder would you be getting your period? I get exhausted when I'm due ever since they came back after feeding Dc2.

I had tiredness and nausea when I stopped feeding my second but that was a bit more sudden than gradual, almost like the first signs of pregnancy again. No expert but think it's hormones/body returning to normal.
Google it, think it's normal, lasts couple of weeks or so.

Thank you for your replies. I got my period back when dd2 was 7mo. Perhaps it's just hormones changing then. I had a quick Google but could only find things about stopping feeding younger babies, where the change would be more pronounced (I think). Couldn't find anything on stopping with a toddler
