  1. Thanks for sharing your story. I’m starting to think about how to wean mine before going back to work in a few months – it’s kind of a daunting prospect!

      It’s scary but we found our “moment” and tried not to look back. I was so tempted to offer in those early days but I persevered!

  2. I just stopped bf a few weeks ago. My baby is nine months old. I do miss it a bit but it was the right time to stop for us both. Interestingly she has slept better since she went on to formula, which I find a bit annoying as I was convinced breastfeeding wasn’t responsible for her rubbish sleep. Well done for feeding for so long x

    • The Growing Mum says:

      How often were you feeding at night? We went down to 1 feed ish so I knew it wasn’t breastfeeding but more having me there. Even now he still puts his hand down my top when we bring him into bed at 5 hahaha

  3. Ahhh it’s such an end of an era isn’t it I remember feeling sad yet excited that my daughter was growing up when we weaned her off at around the same age.

    It’s such an achievement to make it to 13 months – I’m currently 3 months into breastfeeding my second daughter and am dreaming of those breast pad free days!

    Congrats on your achievement Mama! I think we too are coming to the end of our journey at 21 months. Sad times x

    I have not yet reached that stage in my life but I know many people who struggled with breastfeeding when they started out. I am glad I read your post because my naive self was also thinking when I do reach this stage I will have to ‘breastfeed’.

      It’s one of those things that you have to experience to understand. I was in love with the idea of having kids and now I have one, I can see why many people stop at 1 hahahha

    Can’t say I’ll ever understand that feeling 😀 Great post though.

    It can be quite challenging. I stopped at 11 months just before going back to work as it just seemed like the right time for us.

    It sounds like you’ve done brilliantly despite a few hiccups along the way. I weaned my son earlier than that and regretted my decision later. But it sounds like yours was coming to a natural end x

  10. Naomi says:

    You’ve done really well. It is the end of an era but equally, SO MUCH FREEDOM! My second wouldn’t take a bottle and was difficult to wean too.Feeding a baby is such an achievement, well done.
