Not silly! I felt the same way, and had the same thoughts about weaning since we wanted to try for a second child. I remember the exact date of my last pump.

I mean this as a motivator, not as a negative thing, but we are still trying for our second almost a year after I weaned, so maybe you do want to wean soon in case, as you said, it takes you a while to get pregnant? Especially since you have an envy-worthy freezer stash! You have gone above and beyond the call of duty. And just think, you could soon be pumping again, so you deserve a break! Your feelings are totally normal, and great job!!!

My LO is 9 months and I've been eping all along. It breaks my heart that we were never successful at nursing, but I feel proud that I've been able to provide her with bm. I've been counting down the weeks till I wouldn't have to pump anymore, but now that the 12 month mark is getting closer I'm rethinking my plan. Its a tough situation, because if I was nursing I wouldn't cut her off right at a year... I understand this odd love/hate relationship with the pump.
