I've always wondered what will happen if I ever get to the point where EPing seems really manageable- I can understand wanting to keep going if it's so much easier!! :) I think that's actually a really nice amount for not too much pump time!! Keep us posted on how it goes!! :) Jenae

Glad to hear you'll be sticking around :-)
I think that sounds like a nice amount and it'll hopefully be good for Elizabeth to have you giving her BM through the cold season!

I think that's an excellent plan! I hope to follow a similar path. Now, if only I could convince the girls to stop making so much milk!

When I started weaning I did it really really slowly. I guess partly because I didn't want clogs and partly because inside there was still some doubt.

I'm not sure what happened, but over the weekend, I said I'm ready to speed things up! I had been at 2x a day for about two weeks and just decided to not pump on night. I've been at once a day for about three days now.

Maybe hang out at 2x a day until you feel ready to take the next step?

that sounds like a good plan. i think it's better to take things slow until you're ready.

Hey, there is definitely no shame in NOT weaning! That is awesome that you can keep going. I kind of wish I was mentally where you are, but I just snapped. More power to you to keep going!

:) Glad you'll still be here.


I've chickened out too. DS has yet another cold from preschool and I just feel this overwhelming need to try to protect DD from all his germs. Not sure whether I'll make it to spring, but I think my plan to wean by Jan. 15 is out the window.

Hey ladies, still around - sort of - my internet connection at home has been messed up for over a week now and I can barely get on.
