Just need a cyber hug I guess

Well, I've made it to almost 24 weeks pregnant nursing now 13 month old. We had to supplement just a little-like one feeding at night the last few months. She has slowly dropped feedings mostly with my cue though because I knew my supply was dropping and also have a lot of losses (which makes me nervous about nursing sometimes). She would still be nursing probably 6+ times a day if I weren't expecting.

Last night, I tried to let her nurse. She was yanking my shirt and all and she always nurses at night. And the milk is just gone. I'm just sad since all my other kiddos nursed way longer. I think the youngest was 18 months (also because of a pregnancy). DH doesn't understand at all. I guess the pregnancy hormones are magnifying things.
I know I should look on the bright side. DD has not even had a cold yet, no dr. visits and is very healthy. I know I did my best. Why can't I feel anything but sad and guilty?


Homeschooling Momma to 19 yo DD, 16yo DS , 13 yo DD, 5yoDD,4 yo DD, 1 yo DD , 1 month old DD and 6 angels I'll get to see in Heaven one day.

Aw...hugs! Try not to beat yourself up over something that is totally out of your control! You nursed her for as long as you possibly could, and she benefitted so much from that!

Big hugs mama that's so tough

I remember when my supply dipped really low for a while how devastating it was to have a hungry baby and no milk.

You have absolutely done your best! 13 months is really fantastic and this is not something in your control. It sounds like a lot to work through when you weren't planning or expecting it to happen though

Hugs mama! This is my main fear with getting pregnant again so I totally understand.

You've done a great job with nursing this long! Being pregnant is a lot of work for your body. Nursing at all and being pregnant at the same time is a great achievement!

Give her extra snuggles and try not to be too hard on yourself
