I think I want to wean *update, page 2 of replies
yDD is 14 months. I just don't enjoy nursing her any more.
My period started again 3 months ago, and for the week before and the week of, my supply drops dramatically. Which makes yDD unhappy because she's not getting much, and me unhappy because she's an optimist who keeps chomping at the bit until I'm tender. Then my supply picks up again literally overnight, and I'm uncomfortably full for the next day or two while yDD and I readjust.
She rarely wakes up to nurse at night anymore, and refuses the breast if she sees food or anyone else eating. I'm afraid yDD won't get enough fluids or fats if I stop BFing. She's our third child (the only one I BFed) and we're not having anymore kids, and I know I'll miss BFing whenever she does wean.
My most recent goal was 2 years, but I don't think we'll make it because I just don't have the desire to BF anymore.
I'd love to have your input. I'm not sure whether I'm looking for encouragement to keep going, reassurance that wanting to give up at this point doesn't make me a bad parent, or something else altogether- I guess I just want some other POV's and opinions.
