I haven't done the assessment, but know the feeling. Give yourself a break. The one thing that I have always done whenever I have felt completely over the edge is to just stop and play with my children, really! Forget about what you want to do, what you have to do, and just be with them and play with them and love them. It works every time for me.
I weaned, if you want to call it that, my twins very slowly.........very, very slowly, and so I am not sure that I can help you with the weaning. But basically what I did, over serveral months, after I had got to the point of only nursing them to sleep and then through the night, is to eliminate one 'time' at a time. Once they got used to it I would still wait awhile (weeks) and then eliminate another one. Does that make sense? They comforted themselves by patting my breast instead of nursing and to this day still love to touch, pat, feel, rub my breasts, especially during times of stress. I am actually trying to 'wean' them of that habit now, which is about a year later since they have last nursed.
Hang in there and do what is best for you and your babies. You can do this. Altho, I have considered heading for the Bahama's more times than I can count!
