After stopping to breasfeed / express my milk on Good Friday....I am taking strain! No-one warned me that I would feel so sad about stopping breastfeeding...I have just read that it is due to my prolactin levels decreasing and is quite normal. But geez, I am really really sad and tearful and have this growing urge to run to my pump and start expressing right now! I am doubting myself and feeling guilty about no longer being able to feed my babies. Every time I think about the fact that every minute I don't express means my milk is drying up, I just want to cry. I tried to latch the babies on and they did suckle a bit but lost interest quickly. Gosh this is so much harder than I thought it would be when I made the decision to stop.
