    Default I did it.....I finally pump weaned....

    It took me a long time to be comfortable with this...
    I haven't pumped in about 3.5 weeks....Xander will be 16mos old and he only nurses when we are together...
    But I still can't leave the pump home!!
    I'm afraid to get stuck here at work and not have it with me!
    I know I'm a little nuts...


    We've made it 1 YEAR




    A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three. ~Grantly Dick-Read

    Congratulations!

    Maybe you could leave a hand pump at work? That's what I did...

    Congratulations!

    I know what you mean about not being able to be at work without it for a while--I kept mine in my office for months (!) after I stopped pumping. It just didn't feel right without it!

    I LOVE when they ask me....It's just the look that I get when I tell them my 16 month old is STILL nursing! Love it!

    My LO is 10 months and my goal has always been 1 year. But when it comes down to it, I know it is going to be hard emotionally. I've lugged that thing with me every work day for months. Congratulations on giving your LO the gift of your milk for so long while you've been at work.
