How are you feeling about that? Sounds like it's a mutual thing from your twitter post.

Congratulations on all you gave to your daughters (and acknowledgement of the loss of superbaby) and your breastfeeding journeys.

How are you feeling about it? Will you still be around on here?

That's big news. Hope you and C are travelling okay in this new phase. And congratulations on such an incredible breastfeeding journey. Not only have you been a great friend to us, and a wonderful listening ear, but you've also been directly involved in keeping my breastfeeding relationship with DS going. He's a fully breastmilk-fed-to-6-months baby, largely thanks to your generosity. xxx

I feel great, tbh. I'd written the next few years off as breastfeeding ones. R was soooooooo hard to wean at almost 4, to have C wean so easily at 15 months feels like a massive gift. She could have kept going - she asks every few says but is easily distracted. I figured if I'm putting as little effort into weaning her, and it's working, then she's ready. If circumstances were different I'd probably keep going but they aren't, so I'm taking this as a gift of one less thing I'm responsible for, and I need as much of that as i can get . DH is doing all c's nighttime parenting now.
