Yes I know, I'm being ridiculous. I'm very fortunate that I was able to BF in the first place. DS turned 2 a couple of weeks ago and for months the BF has been petering out. He has fed once, for about 2 mins, in the last week and once the week before. DD fed till 18 months and it's happened naturally which is what I wanted but I can't help feeling sad, esp as not having any more DC's. Just having a moment, feel free to ignore!
Thanks Laf. It's funny actually, when my DD now 4.5 uses a straw she looks like she did when she was BF. It makes it harder I think because DS is a real daddy's boy (DD's a mummy's girl) so it's removing the main source of bonding and he seems to have become closer to DH since he started weaning
My DD is 22 months and I am 13 weeks pregnant. I thought she might self wean during pregnancy and I was quite happy with that as although I love breast feeding her, there a times when I hate it and I also get a nursing aversions at times.
However, in the last few weeks she has definitely reduced her feeds (maybe as my supply has dropped a bit, or my supply might have dropped as she's dropped feeds... ) and she doesn't even mind if I am there but don't feed her in the mornings. Sometimes she will just have a quick feed for 30 seconds other mornings and then come off. I don't think she's self weaning yet, she is still having quite a few feeds if we're home all day, but I do feel a bit sad. It surprised me.
He's still hanging in there, quick feed approx 30 secs each side this morning. It was lovely while it lasted. I started doing little kisses from his wrist up the inside of his arm so he came off in a fit of giggles. They're the moments I'll never forget
