Weaning

It's official. Jack is Weaned.

Part of me hates that I couldn't breastfeed him longer. But the other part of me is happy I made it this long.
Some of you know all the issues I had with breastfeeding. I had low supply issues which let to us supplementing with formula, and that gradually turned into Jack only wanting the bottle.
I managed to hold on to a morning feeding until Sunday, Which was our last one. The reason I decided to end was mainly so I could switch back to a normal BC pill. But the other reason was that he was hardly nursing at all during that morning feeding, and not getting much anyways. He had pretty much been self weaning for the past few months.

It is hard though. During that last feeding, I couldn't help but tear up as I thought about the fact that this was the last time I am nursing my baby boy. He is growing up....

I am just glad Jack didn't have any problems with it. He just kept on going like nothing had changed. He's our little "go with the flow" baby... just like Mama and Daddy.

But yeah... I hate it. It makes me want another baby now...

Aww, I am so sorry. I had the same issues because of PCOS and I understand how bittersweet it is.

I have weened my son recently as well and he is only 2.5 months old. It's been a week now and I feel much better about the whole thing.

I'm was having the same issues with my milk supply too.We are down to just 1 night feeding now and formula for all her other feedings. It's sad and I'm trying to hang in there with the one nursing at night, she's only 3 months old.
