weaning is such sweet sorrow

I have freedom! My body is no longer solely for another creature's nutrition! I can go out! I can wear a bra without fold down flaps! I don't leak! Sweet! Sweet?

No! Sorrow! I don't have a still soft warm body cuddled up next to mine. I don't have those eyes staring up at me in complete and total bliss. I don't have the instant remedy for all hurts. I'm not needed, just wanted. I miss her.

That's how I always feel when I wean-- a little bit relieved, but mostly sad. Now that Isaac has been weaned for a couple of months I miss those first few minutes of snuggle-time in the mornings.

:( You're making me rethink my decision to start weaning. I know I will miss it when it we're done. I love that bonding time!

Its been almost 8 mths since i weaned....it is sad, isn't it? But good at the same time to not have to flop your boobs out on demand ;)

I havn't nursed in a year, and to be honest, I still miss the sweetness that can accompany it! Definately sweet sorrow.

Everytime I hear that 'Hungry Baby' cry, my breast still tingle. It's been 22 years since I weaned my youngest! I'd nurse another one if I could!
