As of November 4th Owen is completed weaned. The last couple of days I've been very sad about that...especially at night. I loved snuggling him close right before bed. Yes, I still snuggle him when he has a bottle, but the bottle kind of gets in the way and it's not skin to skin snuggling. It probably takes one breastfeeding mother to another to really understand the attachment and bonding that you have with your child during this time. It's a stage in Owen's life that is over and that makes me very sad! I fully intended on breastfeeding Owen until he was over a year old, but since getting pregnant it's just been too much for my body. Michael tried to cheer me up the other day by reminding me that I have a bun in the oven that will be happy to nurse once it comes out in 7 months. Knowing that does help!

So it begins. Growing Pains already! But Michael does have a point. You'll have another tot to nurse soon. I'm sorry that it happened so soon though!

Hi Lou,

First they stop breast feeding and before You know it they're packing up their stuff to move out of the house. It's GREAT!! Love, Dad
