Today is a sad day for me and my little mister. Here's why: Way back when my little mister was born, almost 11 months ago, I wholeheartedly dived into breastfeeding. I breastfed Em and was determined to breastfeed little mister for a year. So when I had an excess of milk I would pump and even bought a deep freezer so it would last longer. For 6 months I pumped an extra feeding EVERYDAY and for months after I pumped at work like crazy. It was a lot of work and irritating but I wanted him to have the milk later. So at 9 months he no longer wanted to be attached to me and gave it up. The biting was too much anyway. I had the frozen milk supply so I wasn't overly concerned. So everyday (except when we were out of town because that's just too much work) he got a little extra love in a bottle in the form of frozen milk. I did not plan for what a big eater he would be at 10 months. For today is the end of his breast milk supply.
I really hoped it would last longer, I hoped to make it to a year. I know 11 months is pretty great. He is a healthier boy for the time he got my milk. I am still so saddened and I feel the loss of weaning again.
