I wasn't ready for Fiona to be done nursing. She has decided that she's done though. She hasn't nursed in 2 days. I think part of the reason she decided she's done is because my milk supply dropped. After 2 days of not nursing I'm not engorged at all. It just makes me sad.
I knew that someday we would be done breastfeeding. My goal had been to make it to 1 year and then let her decide when to wean. Well, we are 2 weeks past her first birthday and she's decided she's finished.
I'm just not ready to give up those times during the day that I got to sit and snuggle with her. She's such a busy girl these days, I really loved when she would ask to nurse and snuggle up with me for a few minutes. I really didn't think I would be so emotional about Fi weaning. I guess it is just one more way she is telling me that she isn't so much a baby anymore.
I'm proud that we made it so far. I'm glad that I was able to give her a year of breastmilk. I just wasn't ready for it to be over.
