I guess I'm thinking of weaning and wondering how long other people managed to (or plan to) pump?
At first I kept pumping because I believed my baby having bm was more important than losing that amount of time with her each day. She's 6 months now and I'm feeling like I'm missing out on that time, and maybe it isn't worth the tradeoff anymore. I don't get to spend any time with her in the morning because I'm pumping, and work kinda long days (pumping at work makes me stay even longer), so I only see her maybe 1.5 hours at night before she goes to sleep.
I remember seeing a link to some kind of "what bm gets you each month" article, and 6 months was when their gut closes and maybe the immune benefits aren't quite as high? I couldn't find the link again. I'm one of those people that has to justify my decision.
I really want to quit, to spend more time with my baby, and also selfish reasons like my nips still hurting 24/7... how do you quit without feeling so guilty about it?
