let down

It is finished.

Not voluntarily, mind you.  I tried to keep the flow going, but after nursing four other babies I guess my body was like, "No milk for you!"

The last week and half I have been supplementing what I could give with formula hoping that would make it last for awhile.  I was even drinking enough water to fill a small swimming pool each day.  But the feeling of the "let down" had disappeared and I knew the end was near.

Monday morning was the last time I nursed him.

It was a bittersweet feeling.

My body is now my own but I will miss sharing it with my baby.
