    ugh Im done too ladies 2 days in a row all I got was a little less then 3 oz max alllll day....so now the last 2 days I haven't pumped or nursed and the right bb is a little sore if you hit it or someone hugs me, but not bad at all. Its funny bc I never really thought I would like nursing/pumping, and now I'm sad its not working out longer then the 6 months. Even though pumping was a PITA at times, it made me feel powerful that I was my daughters food source. I must say though, I have a freezer stash left for the next week or so, but she has had some formula bottles here and there over the last few days, and it was kinda nice to not have to pump first....but not nice enough that I would stop if I still had a supply!

    Hey Mama, you have done awesome!! I give all of you pumping mama's all the credit and more because I don't think I could have done it. Little Gracie is absolutely beautiful and you are doing an amazing job with her!

    Grady only goes about 5-7 minutes per session during the day, but at night or when he's trying to lull himself to sleep he can be on there for 20-30 minutes. I probably should pop him off when he's doing it but he's my last baby so I spoil him a little.

    haha exactly what happens here!!

    Anne & Ginny - You girls have done above and beyond amazing.. I would have given anything to have had our determination with my first born (I only nursed him for 6 weeks and gave up) So bad I regret that.. I just want to say I am so so SO proud of you two!

    I can't imagine how you ladies are feeling not being able to continue BF. Big hugs to you both, and congratulations on making it this far. That in of itself is a tremendous accomplishment! Do you think you'll continue to do maybe a morning or a nighttime nurse? Just curious...

    How's the pumping going for all the other pumping mama's out there? I'm still at it 3x's/day... Although this morning we were so busy at work I completely forgot about pumping until I looked at the clock and realized it was 11! I usually pump at 9:30 or 10... The funny thing was that I got about the same amount in that one pump than I would from the morning and noon time pumps! I'll pump again around 2:30 then back home to Desiree at 6. Saturday evenings I waitress at a very busy restaurant, and I was there for 6 hours without a chance to pump.. I thought my boobs would EXPLODE!!! I bumped against the bar with my chest, and I thought I would die right there. I hurried out to the car to do a quick pump just to relieve some of the pressure, and it hurt soooo much! I will definitely NOT let that happen again!

    Pumping is going good...still keeping up with her demand. For some reason, I am seeing a supply drop over the last 2 days. Not sure why and it's driving me insane! I still pump 3x a day during the week. On the weekend, she nurses from both sides every 2-3hrs so I don't pump. I really need to start pumping after she goes to bed, just to give me a little more. I'll do it for a week and then just quit. I hate pumping!

    thanks ladies its so crazy to know that I'm really done. It does give me encouragement for the next baby though to know I at least made enough milk (frozen) to get her to six months. Next baby I'll shoot for 7

    Anne - If I had been pumping every day, I don't know that I would have made it this long. You definitely have done something to be very proud of. You should still feel powerful that you fed your daughter for the better part of 6 months! Congratulations!

    As for me, I've been out of town this week but am back now. I was able to get my supply back up with all the extra pumping last weekend, but it seems to be slowing down again. This time I don't have a reason. Sam is eating very well, so the demand is there. Maybe it's hormonal. I read somewhere that even if AF hasn't shown up yet, your body can still be going through cyclical hormonal changes as your cycle tries to get started again. Maybe that's what causes all this. Anyway, if my supply keeps dropping again, I may not go to the extreme measures to get it back up again. We'll see.

    As for nursing in the morning and night, I would like to continue, but I don't know if that will be end up being enough stimulation to keep any milk production going. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens if I don't nurse him 6 times a day.
