I’ve been working on a post about Amy’s birthday party but I need to share this first. She’s decided she’s done nursing! I’m a wreck!
I know it’s irrational but I feel rejected. (Really dumb because she wants to cuddle with me all the time.) We worked so hard to get the hang of nursing and now she’s giving it up. I knew it was coming…She’d been only nursing at night. I’m not ready for this bond to be over!
I wanted to EBF for 6 months (we did). I wanted to nurse her for at least a year (I did). After that, I wanted her to decide when to wean (she did). I met all of my BF goals. Why am I so broken-hearted?
I seriously have been crying all night since I put her down and she refused the breast for the 4th night in a row.
Hubby is trying to be supportive but doesn’t get it. He keeps telling me how proud I should be of what we accomplished. I am, but that doesn’t make this any easier. I’m beside myself with grief over the end of our BF journey. I don’t know what to do!
