    Default BF journey ending

    Well after 9 months my pump and I are parting ways... 6 months of exclusive expressing and feeding EBM and 3 months of mixed feeding later and it's time to finish up.

    I'm sure it's totally normal but I feel guilty and sad, I even cried yesterday in front of DH and I am not a crier.

    How have others dealt with the emotions that come along with weaning?

    Default Re: BF journey ending

    I managed to do almost 2 years with dd1. I was happy to finish bf dd1 as we had a good innings. Sadly only managed barely 9 weeks with dd2 before I had to stop for various reasons. Im still sad and having trouble coming to terms of making that decision. I was so disappointed in not being able to even though it was the right decision for me and dd2 to stop bf.

    No advice. I just know how you are feeling.
