It’s been two weeks since Avery stopped nursing. I miss it more than I ever thought that I would. Although there are things that I can enjoy now that I’m not nursing, there are so many things about it that I miss.
You know the age old saying of “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” This saying holds true for me and my nursing journey. I tried so hard to make it to that 12 month mark with Avery that it took a lot of strength and time to really do it. I was exhausted most of the time because either Avery was to squirmy or distracted to nurse or I wasn’t producing enough for her. It was hard work. But I miss the hard work. And I miss a lot more than that too.
