DD is weaning and I don't like it

DD will be 10 months next Monday and she is weaning on me. I really don't like it. She will only let me BF her before bed, her 5 am feeding, and occasionally before a nap. The weird thing is, she will let me give her a bottle other times, but won't nurse. And because she won't nurse my supply is dropping.

I really wanted to make it to at least a year, but I don't think I'm going to at this rate. It makes me sad.

I felt sad when my second LO weaned at 13 months One day on a trip he just flat out turned his head away from my breast as if he were disgusted. Maybe my milk changed because I got preggers? Anyway, I was NOT ready for that and cried a little bit here and there for a week! Maybe you will make it to one year, if you keep up the routine- don't give up, there's still time!
