It was this time last year that I had my first weekend away from Liv when I went on a writing retreat.

Before I left, we (Liv and I) decided that after fourteen months, it was time to stop breastfeeding.

I can’t believe it’s been more than a year.

I am still a strong advocate for breastfeeding, but ultimately, I believe it’s a woman’s choice and formula is not evil.

Here is my post about ending our breastfeeding journey just a little over a year ago.

    Wow!! I tried so hard and was devastated that breast feeding just didnt work out for me and Braylon 🙁 I vow to next time try even harder! What was your secret?

      I don’t know if there is a secret! It works for some mamas and babies, some it doesn’t. I do think that lactation nurses are sooo helpful. There were days I wanted to quit, especially after returning to work at 4 months, but we made it through! 🙂
