I have had the worst time weaning my now 14 month old. Every time I dropped a nursing session, my emotions went haywire. It was much more than being sad about losing the bond- it felt very hormonal- angry, depressed, emotional in general.
The combination of that and my little one seeming ready encouraged me to progress with the weaning. It has now been over a month since the last time I breastfed. The past few days, I felt that familiar "let down" feeling- and realized I am still producing milk. That awful emotional roller coaster is back as well.
My doctor doesn't seem to have seen this before... anyone else know how long it is truly normal to keep producing milk after weaning completely? Or know anyone else who has had the emotional roller coaster?
Any advice or support is greatly appreciated
