Behavior changes after weaning?

My 20 month old son and I just finished breastfeeding about one month ago. Since then he is sooooo moody. He used to be such a happy, smiley guy, now he's whiney and fussy. I realize we don't get as much cuddly time as when we were nursing, so I make an extra effort to give him lots of extra hugs and kisses (when he isn't whining). I really hope this is a phase. Anyone else go through this? What did you do?

  • my almost 12 month old has been very whiney and fussy lately. he nurses once a day now and is being weaned off formula. he has been self-weaning off my breast, so i dont know if thats what it is since it's been a progressive thing. I hope others respond! I might be going through something similar! or at least I'll be more prepared!
