The Day I Gave Up Breastfeeding

The morning of Lil T’s first birthday, I was sad and lonely…not only was I sad that my youngest was now considered a toddler, but this was the day that I deemed the last day of breastfeeding – forever.Since my husband and I decided not to extend our family anymore and knowing that Lil T was going to be my last baby, I felt the need to go the extra mile with him.  Savoring every moment was simply an understatement. And breastfeeding was simply the easiest way of not letting go....more
