Hi you guys! I miss y'all

Hi ladies. I'm glad to see so many of you are still going strong. I sure do miss you guys. Over the last week or so I've tried to lurk several times but my computer was shutting down when I tried to get on the boards! I took it as a sign that I needed some time away so that I wouldn't be beating myself up over weaning.


Guerin and I are doing well. She is still getting frozen BM, and it may even take us close to a year since she is taking less now. It's a struggle to get her to take 24 ounces (sometimes only 20) but I really want her to have the BM.


I am enjoying my freedom, and I weaned rather easily. I kind of did a modified cold-turkey I guess. The strange thing is that my nipples are just now feeling normal. It has been 4 weeks, and yesterday was the first day that they weren't still sore. I think I just have very sensitive nips because I know it wasn't thrush or an infection. I hope that isn't a sign of things to come for my next baby. I'm even more determined now to make BF work with any future babies!!


Anyway, I just wanted to say hi to you guys, and I still try to lurk when my computer will let me. I sure miss you guys. Keep up all of the good work, that liquid gold is hard to come by!

Hey! Glad to hear that you are doing well. That's great that Guerin is still getting BM. I'm jealous of your weaning success! I started weaning as well. I was dropping from 4x a day to 3x a day and ended up with an awful case of mastitis! As soon as this is over, I'm going to go about weaning again, but I'll probably take something to reduce the supply and drop minutes from pumps instead of pumps. Anyway, it sounds so nice to be on the other side! Keep in touch.

Hi Shannon! It is really nice to hear back from ya! Hello to little Guerin. Glad to hear you guys are doing good.

I am not weaning yet, but hectic work has put me into a temporary lurkdom with respect to ivillage. So I have not been that active as well in the board.

We would really love to hear from you every now and then. TC!!

Hey Shannon,


Good to hear from you. I appreciated hearing your weaning story, including the recent moment of feeling crazy and providing emergency BM for the morning cereal. It's good to know I'm not alone. I'm weaning right now, and just did a pump after 48 hours. It's going fine, but it's still hard to let go altogether. Nola is 10 months now, and is thriving and happy, BM or no.
