I can now officially say that Arya is weaned. I haven't nursed her in over a week. It's been a lot easier than I anticipated. She's asked a few times, but I just tell her that she's a big girl and try to redirect her. Even at night she's been so good without nursing to sleep or having her bottle. Such a big girl! She even started sleeping through the night. It only took 16 months, but better late than never.
I was a little emo at first, what with that being my last physical connection to her and that being my last baby to nurse, but its been for the best. She's eating more, sleeping better, and our bond is just as strong.
I officially have my body 100% back to myself. It's freeing and a little bit sad at the same time. It's like the end of my baby era.
