So I mentioned in my 11 month post that we had started the weaning process.....and never in a million years did I think that I would be writing a post about it, but here I am:) We've just been plugging along with the breastfeeding and things have been going well with it, however he is getting close to turning one and we will be leaving on a delayed 10th anniversary vacation shortly thereafter and I made the decision a long time ago to not take my I looked at the calendar and decided that I would cut out 1 feeding a week over the next three weeks, which puts me finished up Thanksgiving weekend. I started only pumping once a day at work last week, so this will be my last week of pumping! Not sure what I will do with myself....although I will be sad not to have an excuse to duck out of boring meetings:) My frozen supply has been drained over the past few months as my pumping supply had gone way down, so there is not a lot left of that either. Even though I can't boast that he has never had formula, especially with how the beginning of the process started out for me, I am very proud for making it this far and being able to do this wonderful thing for my baby. It always amazed me how my body was able to provide for him (most of the time) and even through all of my struggles I am happy that I did it. In fact, I get a little sad when I think about not doing it anymore! I will definitely miss "our time" especially in the evening when he is going to's to hoping that my plan will work.....or maybe I should say that I'm able to let go:)


  1. Understandable, mama! Hope the transition goes well. Is he really 11 months old already? How did that happen?!

  2. Congrats you amazing breast feeding machine! I am sure you will miss the special time your little guy. Makes me weepy thinking about preparing for that! I definitely will NOT miss my pump :)
