HALLELUJAH!!!

Well its official and I know how much you have all been anticipating this announcement but.........................I am done nursing! I must say that I was just not genetically engineered to do it. After gaining 10lbs, waking up every 2 hours for 5 months, drinking 20 ounces of water every two hours, and taking reglan literally every day to keep my milk up we decided that in my case a happy healthy mom is a bottle feeding mom at least for now. I must say I kind of miss it and so did Isa at first but we are all now doing great! So this should actually be titled "Ode to All Moms Who Nurse"! I raise my hate to all you moms out there who know what I am talking about!

Surely you don't mean "hate"? "Hat"...maybe? Congrats, I always enjoy that freedom but miss it, too!

your body is all yours again! It is wonderful isn't it!

I did reglan too with Lach. I was always stressed out wondering if he was getting enough or if I should also supplement... In the end it was just better to call it good and let go of the tension! She is healthy and chunky so you did good!!

Oh I am so happy for you! I felt a whole new sense of freedom when I stopped nursing and I did it until 1 year... AHHH! Now you can focus on you! :) By the way, we sure miss you guys!

So, Kayla never would take a bottle or binki. She ONLY took me and was quite insistent. I wasn't able to ween her until almost 15 months. I lost all my weight...it was so hard. I was so glad when it was over.

Hey now, the whole reason we put the cruise on hold till next year, was because you were suppose to still be nursing. Dang now its too late!! I want to see you guys and be free from my kids!! Oh, well it gives up more time to save up.

I love your blog, and since I need tutored by you and Mike on how to use it and leave a comment, I have to leave this I"m not sure how, but this is MAMMA LOPEZ HERE!!This particular blog cracked me up. Lynn is due Monday and she's already given up nursing before the baby is born!! After nursing 2 children and all the wonderful "joys" that go with it, this time she's gonna pass. Your blog is absolutely beautiful. I love you!

i'd like to have my boobs back, too. too keep me from being totally jealous of you, i'm trying to remind myself that i'm burning calories nursing, but who am i kidding, i'm jealous, if i wasn't nursing, maybe i'd have a little energy to go walk off the calories!
