Dear Epers,

I have decided its time for me to stop puming! I never thought this day would come, my daughter is 11 months and I have already droped pumps and lowered my supply. I plan on going for the year then stopping. I recentley found out my LO has a cow's milk allergy! I cut all dairy form my diet and she seems fine now, and I dropped a ton of weight wich was a plus. However now I am torn, should i stop pumping and give her soy? I worry about the estrogen in soy.  I have yet to try goats milk, i've heard its less allergenic. Has anyone experieced this? how did you handle it? Should i just keep puming? I dont think i have it in me to go another whole year!! I do have a nice frozen stash, porobalbly about two to three months worth!

Please write with any advice, thanks in advance!
