i think my almost 2 yr old is weaning

My DD will be 2 in a couple of weeks, and I think she's weaning...and I think I'm going to let it happen. She acted like she might want to for a brief moment earlier, and I handed her a sippy and she was totally fine. She was only nursing once per day mostly, and hasn't fallen asleep nursing for quite a while. We've had a really busy weekend, and I just realized she hasn't nursed since sometime Friday - maybe.
Remind me of what I do from here...I have a little bit of pain on my fuller side (the one she always nurses from first), but nothing big. How long does it take to feel completely back to normal, and do you know of any herbs, etc that I could/should take to help prevent infection or other problems? Oddly enough, my DS weaned a week or two before his second birthday as well, but I have little recollection of the weaning process.
Thanks for letting me share!

Re: i think my almost 2 yr old is weaning

I know this is a milestone for you mamma. We just went through it. I can't tell you what to do to ease some pain, because I didn't have any. I would call your LLL leader and ask her, maybe she'll have some tips for you.

I haven't been through this as of yet but I have read "How Weaning Happens" and it has answered a lot of my questions. Good luck mama!

I am honestly not looking forward to my man weaning and he is almost 2.

Hey Mama,

Right there with you. Lucas hasn't nursed in 4 days. He was down to just before bed, but when offered, wanted to sit on his bed and read a book instead. I'm so happy that I let him decide. It's not as hard for either of us.

Anyway, I'm not really full. He's not taken much milk from me in a long time. I did hand express some milk in the shower this morning. You may want to try that. Just express enough to make you comfortable. I've also heard that cabbage leaves work well.

HTH

Express milk to make you comfortable (not more) to prevent any clogged ducts or infection.

Re: i think my almost 2 yr old is weaning

Thanks for your support mamas! We're actually doing well...I had decided last night that if she requested it that i would probably let her...because i really am in no hurry. But she really seems to be finished! I am really not full or anything, so I think it's going to be ok. We're not planning to try for another baby for another year or so, so it's weird to think I'm done for a while. But I think I'm ok with it.
