HUTH - 11 mos, and I'm just done w/my pump

I have decided to give up pumping.  I haven't been making enough milk to meet DD's demand during the day for the last month, and I'm tired of stressing about it.  She's really only interested in nursing to bed at night and first thing in the morning.  So, we made it 11 months W&P and mostly EBM, not bad!  I think we will make it at least to a year nursing, and hopefully her interest in nursing will continue/grow.  It's a little sad, as I don't want to wean her, but I just cannot pump anymore and she is just so interested in the world and not in nursing, except those two times when she really goes at it.  Wish us luck with extended BFing, but if it doesn't work out I feel good about what I did give her.
