Today has been the first day without a BF after 11 months - feeling a bit weird

Feeling a bit strange - I've just put DD to bed without a BF first for the very first time. I wanted to stop as I'm back at work in a week and so decided today was the day (we were down to just one bedtime feed anyway) .... but it felt sooooo strange not to do a BF and to just put her down into her cot.

Surprisingly (and I suppose I should be pleased but actually I felt a slight twinge of shock ) she didn't seem to think anything of it!

Anyway it feels almost like the end of babyhood sad (10 months ago when tearing my hair out and sobbing over feeds I thought today would definitley be a grin day!!!!)

Aww sending you a huge hug!
You've done SO well,you should be very proud of yourself and your LO.

I have a 10mo DS, who still feeds 4-5 times a day,sometimes I feel like I could go on and on bf'ing him but realistically would quite like your situation to happen to me wink

Thank you. A bit of hand holding makes it seem better!

It's an odd feeling isn't it. I've just finished breastfeeding my last after nearly a year, I feel a twinge of sadness and also relief. It's been just over a month and I still go to breastfeed if baby is hurt or tired, baby gave me a look a mixture between bemusement, disgust and hilarity last time I tried

Yes regret and relief sums it up exactly
