After a few weeks of working on it I finally weaned my two kiddos tonight, 5 and almost 3. I cannot believe how sad I am! I just really need some hugs right now to let me know I'm not some crazy lady for feeling this way. I was ready to change this part of our relationships but I didn't know it would hurt so bad.
Just weaned my kids and bawling like crazy
that's really tough, mama. what an incredible job you have done for your kiddos! you have ushered them, gently, into a new era and season of their lives. they are more secure and independent thanks to your efforts. it's totally okay for you to grieve! change is tough and hard and scary sometimes. don't forget to pay yourself on the back for all of your hard work, though.
I have wondered the same thing. My kids are twenty months apart and nursing at three years and seventeen months. It would be almost impossible to stop feeding just my daughter. I ended up night weaning both at the same time because I was waking up so much I was non functional in the day. That said I still feed him some nights. My three year old immediately went from waking at least there times a might to sleeping all night!
