Milestone Moment!

Too much information, maybe, but nursing has been a big part of my early relationship with my sons. I weaned Nate at 9 months when he finally took a bottle.

Due to his early exposure, Jack has always taken a bottle so I wasn't sure when we'd finish nursing. The answer? Today.

My supply has been dwindling - it's very circular. I add in another bottle so I get less milk, Jack gets more frustrated, I add in another bottle, and so it goes. And now it's gone.

I'm a little sad, nothing major. I hope the seven months was good for him. I have no worries about our "bonding" - we gaze into each other's eyes whenever he's eating, no matter what he's eating from. We'll both be fine.
