With Toddler B, the 6 month milestone was huge for me. I counted down the days until that mark on my calendar. Of course, with her I was exclusively pumping, which I hated. I had made the goal in my head of making it to 6 months, with the idea that I would stop when I got there.
I remember making it to that 6 month mark. I felt so relieved- I could stop now! I felt proud- I made it to this moment! Everyone told me that I didn't have to, that I should stop, that it was too much for me. But I pushed on, and I did it. I kept pumpin a couple of days after the 6 month mark- I remember wanting her last bottle of breast milk to be special.
With Baby S it has been easy- or at least mostly easy, most of the time. My goal with her is to make it to 2 years- we've made it this far without even realizing it, so two years should be a breeze!
Happy 6 month anniversary to us!
