Today I started to wean Peanut.. I’m doing it slowly so I don’t get too engorged or get mastitis.
Since I feed from both sides, 4 times a day, the plan is to eliminate one side at one feeding session until we’re done.

Ugh. I think this time will be harder emotionally because it really is the end. There won’t be any more kids. The bond that a mother has with their baby while breastfeeding is hard to describe. You mom’s out there who breasted their babies know what I mean. But I will be proud to said that I breasted both my girls for their first year of life!
