I think she is naturally weaning, don't worry. I heard that the milk starts to taste different at some point and thats when alot of babies wean. I know what ya mean with the soreness--ouch!! Its like starting over

Re: is she weaned??

Two of my dds weaned exactly the same way...and I cried each time. I wasn't ready but apparently they were. Milk does change in taste/volume during pregnancy.
If you were really set on nursing for longer, tandeming you could offer ... or you could wait until after the baby is born when the special difficulties of pregnancy are gone and see if she wants to start nursing again. I never did w/ mine but I know others who have gone back to nursing after several months off.

Re: is she weaned??

My DD self weaned at 15 months when I got preggo. She obviously knew something was up before I did, b/c the week before I found out I was preggers she lost all interest in BFing.

Re: is she weaned??

mama we are in the same exact spot! My DD is 19 months I'm 23 weeks prego. This past 2 weeks or so she hasn't asked for it, and only will if I offer it to her. I was pretty sad about it. I really didn't want her to ween. I was planning on tandem nursing! BUt I felt she was naturally weening so I just didn't offer her anymore and now it has been 4 days with no nursing I have to look at it this way. I did it for 19 months so she will have those antibody's and also now I will only have to nurse one when my son comes in aug. It's hard huh!! I miss it al;ready and it's like she is growing up all of a sudden! They grow up so fast! I was so amazed at how easily she weened herself! Hope you aren't as sad as I was! Happy thoughts your way!!
