Re: want to wean....but not sure if I'm ready :(

I don't have any advice but wanted to give you some hugs.

I'm experiencing some of the same emotions. DS weaned himself at 14 months because he got a horrible cold, had to choose to breathe over nurse at the time and then never went back to nursing. I was really sad it happened so early.

I also vowed to nurse my next baby as long as I could (and it took 4.5 years and IVF to get her here). But now she's 16 months old and much like your DD in that she's awake at least 1-2 times each night to nurse and also in the morning, nap, evening and sometimes other times. I'm ready for a full night sleep! And while the odds of getting PG on my own are nearly 0, I know it is pretty much 0 while BFing.

So I'm a mess of mixed emotions too. I'm not sure what the answer is!
