Currently weaning DS down to just two feeds- he was feeding very often.. Throughout the day, before naps, before night sleep, 10 pm, in bed with me and cluster feeding through the night... So planning on only nursing before one day sleep and after his bath at night
Now on day 3 of trying to wean... He hasn't been happy with it 😟 but he's 19 m/o and was showing no signs of slowing down.
Plus side he's eating more food all of a sudden
I'm a bit of a mess, anxious, tired from the even worse sleepless nights than what we were having before and on the verge of crying for no reason most of the time..
Is this normal? I'm starting to doubt weaning.. Even though reasons above seemed like right reasons now I feel like maybe it's not right iygwim? I can't stand when he cries and I know I can just feed him and it will solve it all in a second. Perhaps an older toddler will understand better and I should've waited.
I'm a mess at the moment!! This is part vent, part looking for advice/ other experiences

Absolutely normal. You're hormones go through an adjustment period every time you drop a feed. I remember DH never knew whether he'd get weepy me, sweet me, or psychotic crazy lady whenever I dropped a feed.
And my friends have all been the same. It's something we often talked about.
