Breastfeeding...well...its ending

Hiya Ladies !!!
hope you all had lovely christmas's!!! ours was brilliant.....
well I think my breastfeeding is coming to the end :cry: ...but we did well ! exclusively fed until she was 4 and half ish months then starting cutting down on the breastfeeds
and now ... shes on 4 bottles a day (although we did have problems with her from the beginning from taking a bottle) shes not interested in me anymore.
I think the bottle s filling her up more than wat i can, i still feed her first thing in the morning and before bed ... but tonite i gave her a bottle before bed and she didnt need a breastfeed
kinda sad but its for the best (for going back to work .. Boooo !! )

well !!! i can say i enjoyed (i was never proper set on doing it but it seemed to work well for us) going to cut the morning feed now ..

anyone else still feeding??

  • I had to finish when he was about 3 months as I was on so much medication that was affecting my supply but I wish I could have lasted as long as you have done! I do wonder how i would have managed with him as he is such a heavy lump and with my big boobs i dont think I would have been very discreet :lol:

    At least you get to have a break and can have a tipple at New Year!! image
  • I'm still feeding, but it is getting less and less.

    Like you, i was exclusively bf'ing until about 4 months, when we started to mix feed, mainly so that hubby could do the morning feed and give me a little time off.

    He's now on 3 meals a day, and has a bottle feed first thing, and before bed. he's mainly only breastfeeding now during the day - but it's mostly snacking.

    I'm sad that it's coming to an end though - it's like he doesn't need me much anymore (stupid to say, I know he's only 7 months old) - but bf'ing him was the only thing that was mine.

    I do think I've done well though - i didn't manage to bf my older son for this long.

  • Well done for doing it for so long!! I only lasted a few days!!

    I guess all our babies are just growing up too quickly. image
