Hello everybody. I wish I would've known about this community when I was preggo. It would've been nice talking to other moms that had October babies too!
I am in the process of weaning my son. Had a rough start with breastfeeding. He didn't latch on right and so we went to pumping and bottle feeding but once he started catching up to me I said screw the bottle! and just nursed him. It was very hard because my breasts hurt like heck for about a week before they got used to it. My goal was 6 months of breastfeeding and then when I got to 6 months I changed it to a year. I can't believe it has come and gone already. We are on one feeding at bedtime now and in about 1 more week I will be dropping this one as well.
Lots of mixed feelings about it. Am so proud of myself for getting this far and not giving up, but am also sad that my little man is growing up. I do believe we are both ready though, and I am looking forward to nursing our next baby.
Is anyone else in the process of weaning and how did you go about it?
