I completely understand. Dalton goes to sleep every now and then without nursing at night, and I feel the same way. A friend of mine has gone 4 days without nursing, and I can't wait, but at the same time I'm apprehensive about when he really does stop!

I think that's completely normal. I was more than ready to wean Kirsty off the breast, however, I do miss BFing at times. I often wonder if Kirsty remembers she used to get milk from me, often wonder if she would know how to latch on/nurse if I offered her a breast!

I definitely think it's normal! As ready as we are to move on there's still a part of us that will be sad.

It's a sign that our little ones are growing up and although they still need us, not in the same way. It's like saying goodbye to a special time in life where they depended on it so much.
