Breastfeeding Part 15: And the Dairy is Closed

Wednesday morning the mom dairy closed for business (at least with this set).

13 months and 9 days is the final tally.

My Aunt Flow came for a visit and my supply usually drops during that time, the girls were being all crazy while nursing and I was just done.

So I closed up shop.  It just seemed like perfect timing for all of us.

So far so good.  But with all my issues with mastitis and no longer having access to a pump, I’m slightly nervous. 

In any case: the fridge is stocked with cabbage and the medicine cabinet has ibuprofen in case mastitis comes and both birth control pills and sudafed to slow up production if things start getting ugly.

Let me tell you as sad as I am that this time is over, I am glad I’m done. 

I feel so free.

And the girls are happy as clams drinking coconut milk from their straw cups.

I fought the good fight.  I saved us a ton of money.  I did the hardest thing I’ve ever done and I have two precious 19lb babies/toddlers to show for it.

I say it’s a win/win situation 🙂
