Tonight is the last time I'll EVER breastfeed!

That's it! It's over. The DTs are 17 months, I'm off on a salsa weekend and when I come back it is over!

I thought I'd feel sad, but actually I'm kinda glad. I've given 6 years to breastfeeding. I think my boobs deserve a rest.

Also I want to throw away ALL my nursing bras and buy lovely pretty bras again. I can't wait for my breasts to shrink a little (please Lord let them shrink). I want to buy tops that fit ALL of me.

So, fair well, goodbye, see ya! MarsLady reclaims her boobs. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good on yer, good to hear you are so positive about it there again after 6 years and twins I think I would be too.

MarsLady Thu 23-Jun-05 22:54:35

Why thank you!

Watcha frogspawn. Good to have you and the lovely lockets back!

I think I'm going to treat myself to a Rigby Peller bra!

Marsy - I must say I felt exactly the same when I stopped bfing ds2 in April aged 15mths. Not even slightly sad. Wonderful to be down a cup size!

well done for feeding two for so long, Mars! enjoy bra shopping!

Aero Thu 23-Jun-05 22:58:43

Oh and I got me a lovely new underwired bra to celebrate - first one of those for about 2 years!

Lockets has just piped up 'OOOOH Rigby Peller bra!!!' so i assume they are good then

it's good to be back mars have we missed anything?

How the devil are you?

MarsLady Thu 23-Jun-05 23:06:44

you haven't missed much. Lots of "kicking off", quite a few births, not enough laughs.

Maybe the laughs will return now that you have!

Thank you Dinny

MarsLady Thu 23-Jun-05 23:08:23

did you say the BREAST of my life? lol

dinny Thu 23-Jun-05 23:08:46

Rigby & Peller are great as they always give you a small back/large cup measurement. v flattering.... measured me 30DD when everywhere else I was 34B... Honestly!

Have a wonderful time on the salsa weekend! What will you do if they don't want to stop? Go away for a fortnight somewhere beautiful? Can I come too?!

PS - six years and feeding twins - I'd have a lie down, not a salsa weekend - can I have some of your energy please?!

MarsLady Thu 23-Jun-05 23:55:28

I'm an evil wicked mother. If they don't want to stop then tough for them lol. Once I get up in the morning the breastfeeding is OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

moondog Fri 24-Jun-05 00:04:20

Twins! For that long! My head is rfeeling! How often are (sorry, were)they feeding by this age then?

MarsLady Fri 24-Jun-05 00:05:27

I went to visit friends in Preston in March and I took them down to night feeds only. Until then it was on demand!

moondog Fri 24-Jun-05 00:06:29

speechless and utterly in awe....

MarsLady Fri 24-Jun-05 00:08:43

And now it is FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MarsLady Fri 24-Jun-05 10:04:35

I am now no longer a breastfeeding mum!

It was wonderful, I loved it! It's over!
