Decision

I’ve been conflicted about breastfeeding lately. It’s an inconvenience to pump at work, but I’m not ready to give up nursing altogether.

I decided this weekend that I’m going to stop breastfeeding during the day. I’ll maintain my 6 a.m., 6 p.m., and 8 p.m. nursing sessions, but let go of the daytime feedings.

This won’t impact Henry’s schedule during the week, as he is already being bottle-fed during that time. It just means that we’ll be bottle-feeding him during the day on the weekends.

We’ve also already introduced him to formula and we’re supplementing his bottles with about 50% formula, so we don’t need to be concerned about not having enough milk.
I’m excited, I’ve found a solution that will work well for both of us!!

    My only advice on this topic is this – you need to do what works for you. Enjoy it while you can – no matter how long you nurse – when you’re done – you’ll miss it.
