Did anyone else feel guilty when they stopped breastfeeding?
yes! I think it is a combination of the major hormone change that happens as you stop producing milk, the pressure from others to continue going, and the maternal instinct to keep going (whether or not that is what is best for baby and mom). ((hugs))
nope! weaning was bittersweet, but both of my boys were ready ( and i was more than ready!). if you aren't feeling good about it, then i would reconsider.
This is not necessarily true. I had to wean my son at 6 months because he almost tore my nipple off (no joke). I didn't feel it was time to wean but I didn't have much of a choice. Feelings are not to be trusted.

I felt bad from the get-go because I wanted to bf but my body just couldn't produce more than a few ounces a day. I dried up by 3 months. No amount of assistance or specialists could help. My body just said no.
depressed like she didnt need me anymore. I did pump so she had enough milk until about 17 months old. : / They never latched so it was a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time of pumping, longer than most Mothers last pumping.
