I've been pumping for my 17 month old and putting the breastmilk in the bottle. I let her self wean off of the breastmilk and she is finally there. She wants nothing to do with my milk. I give her goats milk in a cup now and she loves it. My goal was 2 years and despite my best efforts, she isn't having it.
I am having a hard time letting go of the pump. I don't think you can ever stop without some heartbreak. So ladies, I need your support in telling me that its ok to be done. I've become more attached to this process than my daughter. The commitment that this took was beyond tremendous. Somehow I feel like I'm letting my daughter down, even though she is saying she is done. I'm ready for this new chapter in my life of sleep and sanity.
