I couldn't believe it when I saw this post. I am also weaning after pumping for 8 months and I have pimples all over my face! I used to get a pimping once per month

Weaning is so tough. It is really hard to go through with it! I am holding steady at 2 x/day and using frozen... b/c I just can't quite bring myself to completely stop! I think deep down I'm just hoping that my supply will dry up on it's own...then I woudn't feel as guilty or something... which makes no sense.
How do you guys deal with the emotions?

Oh, and I know what you mean about acne. Funny thing is I didn't even connect it with weaning until read this post!

Hi girls!

Just wanna say that you're definitely not alone in the acne, feeling guilty, weaning bit! I've been wanting to quit pumping for the past month(DD is already 8months old) and Ive even dropped down to 3 (from 4 pumps) but i just cant seem to stop compeletely. I hate this guilty feeling but I cant shake it off.
