My daughter is about to turn three, and she is weaning. I'm pregnant and lost my milk about a month ago, and we have been slowly cutting back. It's very much a mutual thing, although I think I will probably be the one to finally call it quits. She will be just fine-- the whole thing has been very easy and painless. But I am overwhelmed with a sense of sadness and loss, even in the midst of feeling some relief that my body will have a bit of a rest. I am not questioning whether we are ready to wean, but I am taken aback by my sense of grief. We've done this together every day of her life; it has been so vital and amazing. I can't believe it's really almost over.
