    Default Sad...

    I am going to try to start night weaning DD. This is the only time that she nurses as I pump the rest of the day. I am sad b/c this will mean she is done BF--I'm just feeling a little emotional and needed to post..

    Big , Mama. Weaning is such a bittersweet thing. And it must be more so when you're giving up the last direct-from-the-breast feeding. I wish you sweet dreams and a gentle end to the night nursing. You're doing a great job!

    Is there any time of day that you could keep a bf session (like when you get home from work)?

    she doesn't BF....I have been exclusively pumping since returning to work b/c she prefered the bottle....all BFing does is piss her off when she is awake.

    Maybe as she's drifting off to sleep?
    Maybe you can just get some skin-to-skin time and that will help you feel more connected.
