Hi Ladies

Today my DD turned 14 months and here I am ...still pumping. I am down to 1 ppd for an hour in the evening and while I realize that this is a luxury compared with the early days, I am quickly losing my enthusiasm for the task. My supply is slowly dropping (I'm down to 6-8 oz from 40-42 oz at my peak), and it seems like an awful lot of work for so little reward. I also have a new crack in my nipple that is refusing to heal. I know that every little bit of fresh milk is loaded with benefits but I am simply tired :(

I feel your guilt.
