Re: Confused...need advice
Welcome, and congratulations on nursing to 14 months! That's a great milestone, particularly for a working mom, and I think that if you feel unready to wean there's no reason to quit now and every reason to continue on.
After a year, many moms pump wean and just nurse when they are with their babies. That can mean a lot of nursing, or just once or twice per day. Either way, even a relatively small quantity of milk carries plenty of health benefits for both mom and baby. And plenty of mothering benefits, too- if a toddler will nurse, you'll never be at a loss to comfort her to sleep or soothe a bumped head or skinned knee.
No matter when you wean, it is totally normal to be sad, to be relieved, to be conflicted. There are a lot of emotions that come along and surprise us as our kids grow. I know I was both happy and sad when my first daughter weaned at age 3 (never thought I'd go that long, but I did!), and I am finding myself feeling the same way now that she is about to start kindergarten.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
