Being ok with baby needing less
I'm admittedly having a bit of a rough time emotionally knowing that DS needs less mommy milk now. He's 9 1/2 months and we still have our morning, after work, and bedtime nursing routine. Sometimes more when I am home on the weekends. Today is my first day of pumping 1x per day at work instead of 2x per day. I am so proud of him and am trying very hard to be ok with myself making less milk. I mean, it's what is supposed to happen. I know that, but understanding that is another matter.
I'd love to hear experiences from others who've made this transition!
