I DID IT!!!!! ;-)

I sold my PUMP!!! DD and I are now a soley BF(nursing) team!!! Of course I still have 500oz of milk in the freezer - but DH is home now and is going through some of it feeding her once a day while I go out for a run. But after our journey thus far, I feel so completely free and a bit scared at the same time. I mean I lived with Bertha (yes, I named my pump) attached to me for upwards of 4 hours a day every day for 4 months and now she is gone! But I am just so beyond excited that DD is my little nursling it completely outweighs the fears.

I sold it to a very very sweet, very young Marine and his wife with a 2 mo severly toung tied son. Mama asked me a ton of questions. We stood in the parking lot of like 20 mins just talking exclusively pumping. I told her to call me anytime she needed support or help. It felt so good to pass the pumping love (and Bertha) on to another Mama in need and to give her support and the courage to make it through. Her DH was awsome and so supportive. He even chimmed in with a few questions of his own. So great to see her with that kind of DH.

Awesome that you are exclusively breastfeeding!!!!! Great job, You are an inspiration to a lot of Mommas. I'm sure most Mommas wouldn't know its possible to get your LO to latch after so many months of pumping and giving a bottle. Again Great job
