...after almost 20 months I just packed the breast pump away until whenever we need it for future baby#2.
I feel a little guilty and sad as I'm sure DS would have kept drinking and enjoying a bottle at daycare for as long I kept sending them. And I've always had a rather tenuous supply so hope this doesn't affect feeding at nights/ mornings/weekends...
But after having to pump 4-8 times a day for the first few months, then every day at work when I went back at 7 months, I am very glad to see it gone. And to not have to wash all the bottles and parts every night!
And I don't have to stop what I'm doing in the middle of the day to go pump!
I can use my lunch break to actually go and have lunch!
And I can wear normal bras and t-shirts to work again!
Hopefully this is preparing me a little for when we stop breastfeeding altogether, when I will be even more conflicted. (I love breastfeeding! But I hate it so much! But it makes parenting so easy! Argh!)
Sorry for the totally self-indulgent post, but I figured there'd be people here who would understand
