Yesterday was my first day with 1 pump. DD is doing well with the cow's milk and is taking about 7 ounces a day in a Gerber two handle sippy cup. She went down to (three) 5 ounce breastmilk

You did a great job, pumping for almost 13 months so far! Are you going to keep going with one pump for a while and see how long your supply lasts? I think that's what I'm going to do when I get down to one pump.

I think almost everyone feels that same reluctance to quit at the very end. I've only heard of a few ladies who were able to quit without any guilt or sadness. I think the hormonal shift our bodies go through when we stop is partly to blame for that. I hope it isn't too rough on you, and that you are able to enjoy the extra free time! You should treat yourself to a massage or a pedicure for being such a wonderful mom and making such a huge sacrifice for all these months. :)
