Little Miss is creeping up on six months and so is our breastfeeding journey. My son was only 2.5 months when we transitioned him to formula for a number of reasons but mainly lack of support. This go around has been exceptionally better.
But I want to stop.
Well, I do and I don’t. This is where I am at today. I know that if I supplement a little formula that I do not have to completely cut out breastfeeding but God knows I want to.
I need my life back. I need my body back. I need my bed back. I need my sleep back. I am a slave to this machine (and its running in the background as I type). Sometimes I swear it’s talking to me. Today it’s saying “Let go. Let go. Let go. Let go. Let’s go. Let’s go. Let go.”
-If you’re laughing it’s because you know what I am talking about. If you’re not, you’re either a man or have never pumped yourself like a cow.-
SO is the end in sight? Or will the guilt of formula feeding my child scare me into a deeper depression? I know there is middle ground here. I know that there is compromise. Today is just one of those day that I did not sleep and is directly effecting my mood.
Have you been here? Did you stop breastfeed before the magical 12 months? I would love to hear your take on this.
