    Default Anxiety About Pump-Weaning

    Gabbi only nurses once in the morning now and has pretty given up on all other nursing sessions we used to typically have. I've started to wean off my pump sessions during the day and it is breaking my heart. I'm trying to be logical about this...Gabbi is losing interest and we've done well. I hate pumping but I'm having anxiety about not producing milk anymore. Maybe it's because I know there will be no more babies. Am I crazy??
    Hi, I'm Jen, mommy to Victoria (5/24/09, self-weaned 11/1/10) and Gabrielle (5/20/11, still going strong!). Always and sometimes ...when will I stop? When Gabbi says so!

    No, you're not crazy. I had anxiety about weaning from the pump both times.

    I know.
    The very last baby is a weaning all its own.
    you are not crazy.
    breastfeeding defines who we are.
    So who are we when the last LO weans?

    I'm glad this is normal! DH thinks I've lost mind because I usually end up in tears when WD talk about it.
