I am currently BF-ing my 16 month old at morning wakeup time and bedtime only. We are both fine with how things are going (and I am still loving it)! But my husband and I are going away for a week at the end of August (she will be 18 months), so I feel like I should wean before I leave (very sad about this ).
Does anyone have advice for me? Should I keep it going as-is and wean cold-turkey when I leave for my trip? Or should I start now any try to be done before I leave? I am worried about her feeling upset, but also worried about how my body will react if I just stop suddenly.
I am sad about the situation, but also excited to have some time away with my husband and don't want this to get in the way.
Any advice is appreciated.
Also, just a thought, if I hand express a bit each morning and evening (got rid of my pump at 1 year and not missing it!), would it be possible to have some supply when I got back and keep BF-ing? I don't even know how much milk I have left anyway, and I think most of our nursing is about bonding/comfort.
