I just weened my baby 2 weeks and she is doing great! She just wasn't interested in nursing anymore. But I think I am having a really hard time with it almost like a seperation anxiety!
Is this normal and did you cope with it? Also is it normal for your menstral cycle to be off?

I just weaned my baby last week, and it has been harder for me than for her too. When I would BF she would sit up every 5 seconds to look around and play, so I knew she wasn't interested anymore. Now I kind of miss it, but I'm also really glad to have my body back all to myself! I haven't experienced anything abnormal in my menstrual cycle, but it makes sense that it would get messed up. The hormones from bfing are now leaving your body and can interfere with that stuff I think. To cope with not nursing anymore, I just try to get in as many snuggles as I can.
