So you want to wean.
You want to wean, and I hope someone in your support circle is listening. Breastfeeding unearths such strong emotions. That’s how it works, after all. And you feel strongly about this. So you’re weaning.
Did you know the verb ‘to wean’ originates from the Hebrew phrase meaning ‘to ripen’? Presumably, the idea is when a child enters a state of readiness for being entirely weaned, he has ripened, and this itself is a significant milestone.
