No More!

Pumping, that is. Yep, I decided just this morning to do away with the expressing of milk.

This has to do mostly with the very sad returns from last evening. One ounce... barely. How depressing. I felt almost inadequate. I keep flashing back to the days when I could easily fill a 4 oz bottle from one breast.

They say that your body only makes what is needed, and Brenna has been losing interest in nursing. No more laying on the bed and cuddling while Mommy tries to catnap. She's cutting the apron strings. sob

For the past couple of weeks she has had whole milk mixed with mommy's milk. Yesterday she had whole milk all by itself with no ill effects. So, while she will still nurse once or twice a day for, maybe, 5 minutes at a time, the rest of our milk drinking will be from the cow... dispensing from a sippy cup.

How did this happen? Where did my baby go? Tissues, I need tissues.
