Uncensored Facebook...April

Postby ChristmasGift » 19 Apr 2016, 18:40

So I think I've finished BFing. 3 years 8 months. I have been thinking that with school looming I really should stop but it was too easy to just carry on and there always seemed to be a reason not to stop. We were only feeding on alternative nights (not when DH does bedtime) and then only a meager amount. Also recently fed more when she was poorly for a few day. I've had a stomach bug so on Saturday I said I couldn't as I wasn't well. Tonight she didn't even ask. I don't know how I feel about it. If she doesn't ever ask again it will have been the perfectly easy end to something we've both cherished for so long.
Just needed to share as DH doesn't get what a big thing this is.

Big hugs and well done you for going so long. Is it that bittersweet "good to stop easily but how dare it be so easy"?

Well done, totally get what you mean though! How lovely that she will probably remember it.

Well done CG, and hopefully with such a gradual end you'll avoid the hormone crash too. Planning to get yourself some lovely new bras to celebrate?

Well done you.

If she doesn't ask again, be prepared for hormones all over the place and really sore boobs for a couple of weeks as your body adjusts to the next phase of life'

Though as Lily says, you might not suffer.

Well done CG! Be gentle with yourself. It's hard when you stop.

Of course it's a big thing, and if your DH doesn't get it, at least you have all of us waving Pom-poms for you. Well done! New bras are definitely in order. (And remember, it's okay to feel sad. This is the end of something big, not least pq you had mentioned you probably won't have any more. I hope I'm not making it worse for you. I just wanted you to know that someone remembers and is thinking of you.)

Thank you all. No hormone crash at the moment. DH is doing bedtime so this will be the 4th night of not feeding. I less confident than I did that she won't ask tomorrow but will cross that bridge when it happens.

and thank you for this EF. I think knowing there won't be another makes it feel so final but so far so good and yay to the prospect of shiny new bras!

I think it is often hard. I'm still not reconciled to the never breast feeding again idea. I don't want more kids but little Croc gave up so firmly and absolutely all on her own at eight months, I feel a bit cheated.

We will be here holding you if it gets hard. But do wait a little while for your chest to sort itself out before you buy those pretty pretty bras.

Fingers crossed for no crash for you. I didn't crash with either (though it could still come this time as it's not been long since DD2 stopped). Both stopped really, really gradually so I expect that's why.

My status...

My headteacher came to tell me today that I'm owed 2 weeks off!!! The 10 week summer term has just turned into an 8 week one for me! <happy dance>

Not posting on Facebook because my status means that my job share's 10 week term has just turned into a 12 week one... Pretty sure there's no happy dance in her house tonight!

Awesome CG, congrats to you and the Babs for going so long and also for such a gentle ending. Have some chocolate ready in case your hormones do decide to act up!

We're "supposed to" start sleep training with A tonight since she is done with teething for now (four teeth in under three weeks! Ow!) but... I don't want to! :cry I know it will be a huge benefit in the long run, and we both need the better sleep, but I hate the idea of having her cry and not being able to go to her, even if it's just for a few minutes.

I also know that dh will never remember if I don't bring it up, so in theory I could conveniently "forget", but I'd really just be kicking myself in the foot by continuing to delay it.
