Hi! I know I'm not well known here, we've just been lucky to have an uneventful, peaceful nursing relationship. That said, I really need you mommas right now if you'll have me.........
I was just changing into my jammies and as I took off my bra I realized that DS (just turned 2 last month) hadn't asked to nurse since yesterday morning, you could have knocked me over with a feather.
I was home with him until he was one and he transitioned nicely to nursing in the morning and at night when I decided to stop pumping when he was about 15 mo. It's just weird because I've been at the point where I wouldn't be destroyed if he decided it was over but now that I have weaning staring me in the face I feel so different.
It's so weird but I think my problem is that I'm afraid that we're going to have our last nursing session and I'm not going to know that it's the last one and not make a note to keep that memory and it will slip away. Then I'll be so sad to not have that closure to the most intimate and special relationship of my life. I know that we'll likely have another child but it's not the nursing I'm nervous about losing, it's nursing DS, my firstborn.
If they aren't something that you're keeping for just you, would you share your advice, stories, experiences with me Mommas?
Thanks in advance, I just feel like the mommas on MDC are the only people who can gently help me throught this transition.
