    Default Mixed feelings

    Over the last month or so I had been considering weaning my 20month old. She was only having 1 feed per day just before bed but I was starting to dread it every night! It was no longer the nice relaxing cuddly experience it used to be as my DD had started to wiggle, kick, hit and scratch me all while not letting go of my nipple, ouch!
    Then about 5 days ago she was so tired that she went straight to bed without her feed, I thought she would probably wake during the night wanting one but she didn't. Then the next night she didn't ask for her milk so i offered it anyway but she didn't want any. Today will be day 6 with no breastfeeding.
    I know I was considering weaning anyway so I should be happy that DD must have decided she was ready to wean by herself BUT I'm so sad!
    If I knew the last feed was going to be the last then I would have... Well I don't know what I would have done but I just wish I knew.
    Breastfeeding was my secret weapon to get my DD to sleep if she was sick or just very unsettled. Now I feel lost without it.
    I don't really know the point of my post bug I just needed to get it out there, is this normal to be so emotional when your breastfeeding relationship with your child ends?
