DS is 18 mo and I have been weaning him b/c we are TTC and don't want the kids to be too far apart in age. I have not really gotten AF back (only 36 hrs of slight flow at 18 mo) and so have figured I may be one of those women who have to wean to regain fertility.
The problem is I FEEL SO GUILTY about weaning DS. He is only nursing before bed at this point, would definitely nurse in the morning if I let him. He is OK with not nursing in am, can be distracted, but certainly asks to nurse and then I have to tell him no. This makes me feel like a horrible mother.
I don't know if it is normal to feel so guilty and sad - I wish I could nurse him through my next pregnancy, but don't know if its possible. How do you mamas justify your decision to wean without feeling that you are cutting LOs off before they are ready? I want so badly to do what is best for DS, but we also want to have more kiddos - it just seems to hard and sad.
