DD is turning one at the end of the month. I've got a freezer stash to last about 2 weeks plus I figure as I wean she will get a few feeds out of that. I've been pumping once a day for 2 weeks, getting 4 -5 oz but the last couple of nights for some strange reason my nipples have become cracked and bleeding (this hasn't happened to me previously). It made the decision easier because I thought I would HUTH at 12 mths but was afraid to let go of my relationship with the pump.... I've been fighting with the idea in my head for weeks now - should I quit? can I quit? Is it better for DD to continue? etc etc etc Now that I have made the decision it is like a load has come off and I'm looking forward to being pump free.
I will probably jump back on the board once we've finished the process because only you girls can understand what this means to a long time pumper. I'm so grateful for the support I received here in the early days - most of it by being a lurker.... ; )
Good luck everyone!~ And remember - if I can do it you can too!
