I've Become THAT Lady...

In just one week, I am going back to work :( I can easily say this has been the best summer ever and as much as I hate going back to work, I am so grateful to have a job that lets me stay home with Lilie for two months straight.

Now the real reason for this blog post. Since before I had the baby, I planned on weaning Lilie from breastfeeding before I started another school year. However, I have become that lady that isn't ready to give it up. Never thought I'd be saying that. She is 6 months old. She has no problem taking formula. But I know with the hours that I work during play season, she is going to have to have a lot more than she is taking now.

I have done a little bit of research on partial weaning, sounds great, but not sure if it will really work. I hate pumping at work and would really love it if I didn't have to. I have had no supply issues so in theory I guess I should be ok.

If any of my nursing mom friends have any advice, experience, comments, or thoughts please feel free to share. I need to figure out what I'm gonna do with this baby girl! I just got teary-eyed reading some articles about weaning! How did this happen to me?!?!

Thanks in advance!
