I had a lot of problems with breastfeeding at the start (first 3 months-pain/thrush/mastitis?/tongue-tie/latching issues, no one was completely sure). But ever since we cracked it, I've enjoyed it no end and I'm so proud that I continued even in the darkest hour.
I'm considering when to wean my boo completely (she's just short of her 1st birthday) and I have to be honest, I'm struggling to decide what and when to do it. It's a very emotional decision.
I have lots of things to consider. I have Fibromyalgia which means I'm tired a lot of the time, weaning completely would possibly let me use the energy I use for feeding for things like volunteering or rehearsals for theatre shows (which are evenings, when she has one feed).
I'm mainly asking for advice about the positives for feeding after a year.
What advice could any of you give me about needing freedom and energy but also still wanting to bf?
Thanks in advance!
