How Did I Wean My Toddler?

I get asked about my weaning journey often.

I breastfed my son from June 2020 to February 2022. It was a 20-month journey for us.

Before I weaned, I was convinced the hardest days were behind me. Joke on me.

Weaning was a different type of beast.

(Please note that I am not a lactation consultant. I'm a breastfeeding mama sharing what worked for her. Please always seek advice from a lactation professional or doctor if you have any concerns.)

I'll start by saying my toddler would have breastfed until he was 5 if I allowed it. He was, in no way, ready to wean. However, this mama was EXHAUSTED, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
