Breastfeeding... Well, maybe I'm done I don't know?

I guess I assumed as long as I pumped, I would breastfeed too! But, he seems uninterested now. I've tried a couple times - and he'll start, but gets distracted right away. I'll try a couple more times - but since I plan to wean soon anyway - I won't push it.

I thought I would be sad - but honestly - because of all the pumping - I think I'm excited to be done! It was well worth it - but we are getting closer and closer to that year mark - and I'm pretty sure we'll be done before then!

I think you have done a fantastic job Jenny! You should be so proud that you BF this long. I can't imagine working and BFing. If he doesn't seem to miss it then I say just let it go.

Logan is attached to them I just don't know that we will ever wean

Great job nursing for so long! DD is losing interest again. My goal was to EBF through this month before introducing organic whole but now I'm not sure if she will let me. We're just taking it one day at a time.

Pumping is so hard IMO, so to pump so much for almost a year is AMAZING! I am only pumping once a day at work now, boy do I not miss those days of pumping three times a day at work!

Thanks Ladies! I cut down to 2x at work pumping now... I did nurse him last night - and he did good. So who knows! He has been biting a bit more now... I think he does that because he is used to the bottle which has immediate flow - and with bfing it may take a minute. Once I get a good flow going - he stops biting.

But - this will be a good time to start weaning anyway... every couple of days I will nurse him as he lets me.
