Re: I dont know how to feel

The beauty of child led weaning is that you know they are ready and it is such a natural process. My ds self-weaned at 18 months and dd started the process (even though I had to finish it quickly because I was preggo and couldn't handle nursing while pregnant) at 26 months. I still miss nursing her and was convinced that if she asked again once the baby was born that I'd give tandem nursing a try...but she has never asked...so I guess she was pretty ready to wean too. Men just can't understand the nursing relationship. There really isn't a standard of comparison for them. Nursing is wholly a beautiful, mother/child relationship. What a blessing to have that in our lives.
