    SO upset once again... She's refusing morning nursing now which is when I have the most milk. Never saw this coming, I always thought the morning would be one of the last sessions to go. Crying like a baby over it, ugh. It's been going on for about a week now and it's so frustrating to the point where I don't even want to get her in the morning. :/. She gets out of the crib and runs to the door and says out. Runs from me if I try to grab her, which is so heartbreaking for me. Not sure how to overcome this feeling of sadness...I don't know if it's a phase/strike or if suddenly she's just done? Sob...

    Ugh. I'm so sorry, mama. This is the sort of "weaning" that Joe has been doing too. Just really rejecting. Screaming "NO MAMA MILKIES!"

    Two year olds: They're not the most diplomatic or empathic creatures, are they?

    And weaning really messes with your hormones and feelings. I wish I had something really helpful to say about this, but I'm going through the same thing. Not only is Joe weaning, but he's weaning in a way that I find pretty harsh and unpleasant. Not what I imagined, you know?

    It's definitely messing with my hormones... I just can't wrap my head around it because she's never done this to me before (outright refuse milk all day long!). I mean it's very abrupt. Our nursing sessions were getting shorter and shorter, but we were still nursing 4x/day just 2 weeks ago. Now she doesn't want it at all!!!!
