I have had so much support from family,friends and twitter. I think that is key to becoming a successful breastfeeding mama. I have had a wonderful 16 months of nursing my baby girl.
But as all good things must come to a close sometimes..I think our time has come to wean.. I have been back and forth about weaning. I kind of feel selfish about it because I am not sure my daughter is 100 percent ready to give it up but part of me is ready to have my body back. Does that sounds bad? Also I am afraid if we keep going to that it would be even harder to stop nursing even more then it is now.
I know that some choose to nurse until baby is ready on their own. I do not see anything wrong with you who choose to nurse for how ever you and your baby choose too.
We are on day 2 of weaning.. So far we have cut out all day time weaning and have only nursed first thing in the am and at night before bed time. Last night was a bit hard in the middle of the night as she looked to nurse but I held my own and she went back to sleep ok. I think we will keep the am and night feeding for a few days and then try to break those. I have heard day time feeding are the best way to go first then break the night and am feeds. Wish us luck.
I think this is best for me and my baby girl..
