After 11 1/2 months Im HUTH!! Wow! I can't believe I just said that. It kinda feels good!
After an emotional morning as my busy son who can now pull himself on the couch pulled at my hoses and then when put down on the floor would disconnect my pump from the wall. I decided that maybe it was time to HUTH. At first it was just a thought, a bad day! However the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I was okay with it and most importantly ready! I had never felt this way before. When I would have a bad day pumping and my husband would say "You know you have done a really great job the last 6 months, 9 months... maybe its time to quit" I always knew the time wasn't right! But now it feels right!
I have the next two weeks of work, and I thought this would be a great time to break away from the medela.
Im down to 1x a day now, and Im sure that will only last a few days.

By the end of the week I will be packing away the medela! When I do I will think of all of the wonderful woman in this group who have supported me through this long and often difficult journey. We have purservered!!! We did what many mothers would never do!
I feel proud to have made it this far! Im looking forward to taking the time I would normally be spending pumping and enjoying every moment with my little man over the holidays.
Thank you so much! This group was my strength! You are all amazing!
One of the most important things I learned was to never quit pumping on a bad day! How true is that!
Thank you Thank you Thank YOU!

Congrats on almost weaning. :-) It's fun to even celebrate the increase in your freedom!

I was SO convinced I was weaning and that I would hate 2x, but I'm finding it not so bad...
