Re: How long did you...or do you plan to bf?
I've heard of LOTS of mama's going through a post-weaning depression. There is actually a big hormonal change that takes place within the mom, similar to after having the baby, that causes the feelings of sadness over weaning. Very common yet NOT very talked about!!

I mean, I'm proud of both of us for breastfeeding that long, but I loved it so much I didn't want it to end!!
