I feel weird and really sad. I am going back to work next month and my 11 month old baby and I are ending our bfing journey. I am down to one bf session of about 3 mins each side every other day after her nighttime bottle and next week will go to every 4 days, then the following week one feed a week and then thats it!
I dont expect IŽll have milk for much longer after that if I make it that long.
I feel sad, we have really enjoyed it and even with 4 teeth she doesnŽt bite, I have to admit to savouring these last feeds and really honestly didnt imagine 6 months ago that IŽd be feeling this way!!
aw i know what you mean my girl doesnt want to bf from me during the day except once before her nap, she likes to be a big girl and drink it cold from the fridge in a cup lol i am pumping as best as i can bit have started to give top ups of formula
after a month of this i am already feeling like i cant wait to stop pumping but she still feeds from me 4 times at night - bedtime, 11pm, 3am and when she wakes.... for two days i didnt pump on the third day she was crying at 3am because i was no where near full enough for her to be satisfied from her previous feed so i have no option but to pump
i dont want it to end but i want to get to 11 months hopefully she wont be night feeding then i can start introducing normal milk, i will miss it terribly but gah the pumping
