Nursing No More.

So I guess I am done nursing. Last week after I worked I noticed the rest of my week off every time I would try to nurse Kai he was super frustrated and would latch on and then pull off. He would do that a few times and then kinda cry and then latch on again. I could tell he was frustrated that the milk wasn't coming fast enough and there wasn't very much of it. Then this week when I started work again I pumped the first night and barely got a 1/2 ounce. It was like drops. So after going back and forth a million times as to whether or not I should be done and even though I don't feel totally ready to be done, I think it's time. I think part of the reason I was hanging on to it was because I was afraid if I stopped that I might feel worse. So really I was doing it more for me than him. For some reason this time I feel so much more attached to him nursing...maybe it's because he is still so young. Anyway I have to have faith that it will be ok and that I will feel fine. Actually I really think I will. I think this will be good. So hopefully my transition to nursing no more will be smooth...I know it will be for Kai.

Myca! I have just been thinking about you all the time. I think that this is great. I really was reluctant about stopping nursing my twins, but once I did, I felt WAY WAY better. I'm really hoping that it will make you feel better too. Love you.

Myca, I hated that I had to stop nursing Logan so soon (at 6 weeks), but within a few weeks I felt 100% better. Looking back it was a good thing for me and him that I had to stop. Good Luck, he is a doll!

I know how hard it is to stop nursing. I felt that way even when brigitte was 8 months old and had no interest in it anymore! But hopefully this will be the last hurdle in your postpartum recovery and you will be 100% in no time! Ima little jealous actually,nursing is not my favorite because it keeps me 10+ pounds heavy! So enjoy your tiny self and your freedom!
