I stopped breastfeeding just after they turned 8 months. The boys were telling me they weren’t that interested any more and as a result, my low supply dipped even further. I weaned from pumping at work and then only nursed them in the morning and evening. And then one day we didn’t nurse at all and just like that, breastfeeding was in the past.
I loved breastfeeding but I’m at peace with stopping. It was up to the boys and they decided when it was time. It’s actually kind of nice to wear all of my cute clothes I haven’t been able to wear in so long. Clothes that made pumping easy were getting really boring. My boobs are back to their regular size (A!) but a little softer now.
Three weeks after weaning, my old friend AF arrived. I hadn’t seen her since October 2010. I was actually kind of happy to see her because it actually made me feel like a real girl again!
Now that I can’t blame breastfeeding and hormones anymore, I’m gonna have to get to work on removing these last 5 pounds of pregnancy weight. And toning up my soft tummy!
