I think my breastfeeding days with Owen may be over. I have been trying to get him to ease up on the boob time more and more because I really am just done and want a break. Anyway, he now hasn't nursed in 48 hours. I know that isn't much but this guy seriously still nursed round the clock on demand 2 months ago!!

I know I am completely dried up. I can no longer squeeze even a drop and his latch has changed like he is trying to figure out ways to do it or has even forgotten(??).

I am having those horribly bittersweet feelings about it! In one way I wanted him to keep nursing until HE was done for sure and in another way I feel like I would be jipping this baby by going into it so jaded about nursing. This way I get some time to look forward to nursing a baby again rather than feeling almost resentful about it. KWIM?? However, I feel like Leila got 3 1/2 years and I am jipping Owen out of 1 1/2 years of nursing for selfish reasons. I know that is kind of silly but doesn't stop it from staying in my head.

Just wanted to share...I am sure I will update if this truly is the end. After all, I will have to become Nomoreboobydutyjen lol if that is the case!

I can only imagine how you must feel. Sometimes I look forward to the day Juliana weans but I probably will cry, too.

He is done. He has asked a couple of times but can always be swayed very easily. My breastfeeding days are over for the moment. Of course, I will have another little one right away but I am saddened over this change. I'll officially see you guys in a year and a half or so. I may have to pop in and out though because this board has been so important to me for 2 1/2 years now!
