You may miss that bond, true, but you can still cuddle and read, cuddle and rock, cuddle and teach...etc.

All the best to you and your little man.

Thanks! I do feel really good about my first bf'ing experience, its been wonderful and I am very happy I made it this far (despite many comments and suggestions to stop). I will miss the bond but you're right, maybe I form it again in other ways. Since I've started my period now, I don't feel quite as rushed to stop.

Its a difficult feeling eh? Even though you know you've given your child one of the best starts by bf'ing.
