So sad and yet happy all at once

My little one is 17 months old and it seems she is weaning. She really hasn't had more than a sip or two of breastmilk the past week. It makes me sad that she's weaning but I'm also happy because we made it this long. She still won't go to sleep without me though and she still needs to be touching my boobs, lol.

At this age, they can do one driveby a week and they're still nursing. Normal stuff.

How long do you think I can go before I completely dry up? I am hoping that maybe the teething-all 4 canines- has something to do with not wanting to nurse and she starts again soon.

Treating the teething pain will help. Hyland's teething tablets and frozen breastmilk in a mesh feeder are great. Infant ibuprofen if it's really bad. Just keep offering!

Thanks we do, do the teething tablets and they make a huge difference. I'm not sure at this point that I can pump or express enough to do the frozen breastmilk but I'm sure she would love it.

It takes a LONG time to completely dry up. She could do this kind of nursing for another year or longer.
