Farewell My Trusted Friend

Yesterday I bade a fond farewell to a good friend, a trusted one at that… We’ve known each other for a little over a year, but we’ve grown so close to each other. I said goodbye to my cooler bag. My beloved cooler bag, which I used to transport the EBM I expressed at work back home for the past one year or so, and has served me well has done its duty. I noticed it was torn for several weeks already, but I only had the heart to throw it away yesterday.

Well, this does not mean I am putting the brakes on breastfeeding. I have another cooler bag from Avent which I will be using from now on.

So….when will I stop breastfeeding? I can’t answer that question myself, although many people have posed this question to me. There are so many factors governing the reason why I am still continuing with my labor of love:

  • Breastfeeding is providing Ethan the necessary nutrients and immunity he so deserves. At 14 months and counting, I am not regretting one instance of my breastfeeding journey, and I never will.
  • The price of milk powder and formula has increased with effect from this month. Breast milk is free.
  • No need to exercise as often as I need to. 😛
  • I have an excuse to excuse myself from work when I go to my company’s mothers’ room to express milk. And it’s a valid excuse! Hehe…. I’m still going twice a day at work, but plan to cut down to once a day, perhaps next month.
  • And the no. 1 reason why I am still breastfeeding is…..

Now, isn’t he inspiration enough? 😀

    I still can’t stop… and that was why I can’t conceive????? 🙁
    Anyway, Darrius still needs my boobs to sleep sometimes and he needs it almost every middle of the night…

    If you have no intention to conceive now by all means continue till Ethan wean himself… Mama’s milk is the best gift of love!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Tell me about it. Ethan is still into comfort suckling in the middle of the night too!
