Tunguska Blast...

Well, Mateo turned a month old on Saturday and I decided that I was finally done with BF.
I had told myself that I would make it 1 month and re evaluate my situation. The nipple pain 24/7 was just too much to deal with. I tried for 2 weeks to correct his latch to no avail. I think I was sooo tired of it all that it was not that hard of a decision to make. It had become a painful chore rather than something we both enjoyed.
So, for the past 2 days I've been pumping and feel pretty good about it.
I don't have any great expectations and I'm setting short term goals. Right now I'm hoping to make it 2 weeks and then we'll see. I don't think I'll be able to pump much once I go back to work, but at least make it till then. We'll see.
I'm at peace with the decision and I'm actually happier and enjoying him more. It's like I got this load off my shoulders once I made that finally step, I was just dredding making the decision.
