well i didnt know it wuold be my last but i guess it is. i pumped saturday morning after work and havent pumped since. Ive had a hard time letting go even though i was desperately sick of pumping. my DD will have enough milk for another month but its sad to think that may be the last time ever i do this, sigh. thanks for all the support through the most everyone was so helpful.

your post made me teary-eyed. i just started weaning and even though i have hated most of my time pumping i am still so sad at the thought of stopping. every time there is a dip in my supply i have a moment of panic and consider adding pumps to bring my supply back up. even though its not the skin on skin, bonding experince of breastfeeding, i still think that pumping is a very intimate connection to our LO's. its hard to let go of because it means they are growing up....you did an incredible thing for your baby -- be proud :)
