So on Jan 13th I started to wean Hailey from BM. I was in way too much pain (sore nipps, bleeding), had less and less time to do it at work, spent little to no time with Hailey at home b/c of it (always a pumping session that kept me away from quality time with her!), and Hailey liked formula just fine since day 1 anyway. I figured I've been givin her the good stuff since day 1, and 5 mths is much longer than I ever thought I'd BF! Also I always had a goal of BFing till she'd start solids so as long as she still gets form, she really didnt need BM to grow.

I used to pump 3x day but on Jan 13th I tried to go to work w/o ANY pump - i know, CRAZY! - but was in way too much pain by the time I got home from work that I just had to pump to relieve pain that night, so I pumped just 1x for 10 mins (used to be 20 min+ per session!). The next day I pumped 1x before work for only 5 mins. By the time I got home that day I was surprisingly fine, no need to pump. The following day I pumped ZERO times, and I was just dandy!!! I thought it would be sooo much more painful and lengthy a process, phew!

I made sure to take short warm showers to squeeze anything out, I know that having leftovers is bad, but nothin really comes out so I think I'm all set.

I'm so glad that now I have my LIFE back! I can spend more time with Hailey and DH, go out on errands w/o the constant need to run back and pump, SLEEP IN (!), and Hailey still grows to be healthy nevertheless
