We're really getting close to weaning. It hurts so badly to nurse and we're talking to my 39 mo old about a weaning party if she can go 2 weeks without nursing. Do you think 2 weeks is long enough that will demonstrate she's really done? In the last few weeks she only nurses for about a second, just one side at a time and a couple times a day max but now it's been 2 days and I'm hoping this is just the end. I have loved nursing her, I'm glad we stuck it out through a very difficult first year, but after nursing her through 2 11-week pregnancies and potentially pregnant again and all the pain that goes along with that, I'm done. I know there isn't research to link breastfeeding and miscarriage, but my progesterone is quite low, my hormones are really messed up and I just want to be done and see if it helps my cycles get more normal and helps me get another take home baby.
For those who have had a weaning party, what did you do? I'm thinking just my husband, she and I will do something since it's getting close to November and there are 2 weekends with stuff for my sisters' babies already booked, plus Thanksgiving and one of our little babies' birthdays/anniversary of miscarriage but I want her to look forward to it and have an incentive to just say she's taking a step of growing up and nummies are done. I know I'm done, really I've been ready for a year now but I'm just more and more done all the time.
