When to wean is one of the hardest & most personal decisions you have to make as a mother.It sounds like you are ready to do so. While I too, conceieved while nursing at 40, I got my period back when my babies were 9 months old whether they were nursing exclusively or started on some solids.
Everyone is different. I certainly think that night nursing is the hardest to quit, it was always the last to go for us,we used sippy cups if they needed fluids to stop the whole sucking thing as you can just trade breast for bottle & still be awake all night!We also did soothing backrubs to get them to sleep so touch was still involved in the routine. We kept co-sleeping.Finding other ways to offer comfort during the day helps too.I know now that I was lucky,I got to keep nursing while TTC & got to nurse through my last pregnancy-you have now nursed for 2 solid years,provided great physical & emotional benefits for you & your child.Good for you! If you have made your decision maybe start looking for tips here & from books as to make your transition easy for you & your family,certainly if you can wean him from the night feedings you will know whether it is time to wean altogether.
Glad to hear from you, we missed you!I am hoping to follow in your footsteps & be a 45 year old new mom too! I certainly wouldn't give up the ship unless you are feeling pulled in that direction. I actually expect to go at this just a few more months but that is as much because I am having such a hard time detaching from the obsession of it as it is lack of confidence in my eggs-I honestly think I have a few good ones left.
I am sorry that your Diabetes is wearing you down, are they able to control your sugars?Good luck on your tests!
I would like nothing better than to share 9 months of pregnancy with you,
that would be so cool...& Polka you can come too!
