My son is 15 months old. I have been nursing him 4 times a day, except when I go to work, in which case I nurse morning and night, while my nanny gives him milk the other two times. I'm now trying to fully wean. Tonight I managed to give my son a sippy cup of milk (lastnight he rejected it totally), even though it was difficult. Tomorrow I'll nurse in the morning, but eventually I'll drop it. I'm feeling torn about my decision, especially since my son loves it so much, but I feel like I want my body back to myself and the independence of letting someone else give my son milk at night while I'm out. And my body is almost back to the way it was pre-pregnancy, but I feel that once I wean, hopefully it'll go totally back to normal. Still, I feel guilty. I know I give my son joy in so many other ways, but I love how he needs me for nursing. Anyone else feel similarly torn?
