Delurking to say, good for you. You made it for a long, long time and that IS an accomplishment. I made it to 2 months and was happy with that. My life and my mental health got much better after that. Today my daughter is 15 months old, happy, healthy and none the worse for it. Now I have to deal with getting her off the bottle, not with what is in it.

I only wish that 6 years ago BLOGS (public diaries) were so prevelant that I could remind myself that, "So this is the lesson I'm taking away from this experience: Sometimes we work ourselves up over a decision - agonize over it, pick it apart, create unnecessary layers of complexity and stomp on our hearts - only to find that once the decision is made, it really was no big deal at all."

Six years later with BlOGS and a new appreciation for motherhood and communication, I will try to remind myself; "So this is the lesson I'm taking away from this experience: Sometimes we work ourselves up over a decision - agonize over it, pick it apart, create unnecessary layers of complexity and stomp on our hearts - only to find that once the decision is made, it really was no big deal at all."

You are annoited (sp). Welcome to motherhood! To both of us...

I am glad you are at peace with your desicion. Enjoy all the extra time in your day!

That's pretty much exactly how I felt when I weaned. It was a great relief. My life is better now and I am more relaxed and more fun with my child. I rarely think about pumping now, and that's how I like it. No regrets about weaning at all.

(That's kind of why I was a little perturbed by your naturopath's suggestion that you keep pumping longer--that wouldn't be good for your welfare at this point and that should be your naturopath's main concern!)

It's so funny--I sort of finally weaned under similar circumstances. I was out of town (had pump with me) but "accidentally" left my collection kit behind when I left for home so that I couldn't pump when I got home. Sure, I could have hobbled together something from spare parts, but I was done.

I am so glad for you that you are, too. :) I am SERIOUS about new bras and maybe a dress you could never pump in.

I have been reading for a while... I EP'd for about two weeks.. Then I finally got the baby to latch after seeing a LC... That nearly killed me. I applaud you for doing it for so long. You made the right decision. I do have to say I agree with the person who was annoyed with your Naturopath... The best decision is always the one that puts you at ease in the end. The one that leaves you without the weight on your back and makes it easier to breathe. I love your blog. I think you are a wonderful mother. I am one of your "lurking" readers who you always put at ease with the way you phrase things. I am glad to know that I am not alone when it comes to many things you have said about motherhood. (My favorite was the shower and "pretending" you weren't a mommy for just a second.) Keep it up! You're doing wonderfully, and NG will always love you for it!

God you've done SO well to have pumped for NG for so long. Truly.

I felt the same kinds of things when I had to start comp feeding with formula for Spudly when he was 8 weeks. I felt like I'd failed, like it was the decision I never wanted to make blah blah blah, and in the end it was the best thing I could have done for both of us.

Congratulations on your perseverence. You've done yourself proud, girl.

It is true that we all do our best to express milk that our babies need. As you've stated on your post that how important is to have one. I also have one and really gives me a comfort and a relaxing feeling while using it anywhere I go.
