The end of breast feeding ...

I made it almost nine whole months of nursing Allyson. Ally all of a sudden is so uninterested in it.  I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'm a little sad to be giving it up. I really planned on nursing her for a year and I'm just 3 months short of that. I feel like I worked so hard to make breast feeding work. I went to the LC 2-3 a week. I pumped for my supply and ate oatmeal for days to increase it. I know I should be happy I've made it this long. 9 months, it's something to be proud of. It just sucks that I'm not the one choosing to end it ... she is.


  1. I would just like to say congrats for making it 9 months! That really is an accomplishment. I remember when Connor and I ended our "relationship". We made it 10.5 months, but I really wanted to get to a year. In retrospect, I realize most people barely make it 2-3 months, so all of us mommies that make it longer should be proud. Congrats for making it so far and sorry that it had to end sooner than you hoped.

  2. Awe.
    Well, I think you both should be proud of yourselves for getting to this point. I think it's better for them to decide when to call it quits anyway.
