Original entry here.

It has been 9 months since my previous post, and some things have happened. At 15 months we stopped breastfeeding. I’m still a little sad, I thought we would breastfeed longer than that but we gave my daughter whole milk after she turned 12 months and by 15 months she just wasn’t interested in me anymore. Once my milk dried up I noticed all of these little tiny white stretch marks surrounding my nipples. I hate them! My right boob has more than my left and they are bigger and deeper too. I think that is because she always preferred my right breast. I’m not happy with the way my boobs turned out at all! But on a positive note I am completely fine with the rest of my body. My tummy still sticks out a tiny bit but that’s okay. I have been running for 2 months now and I can really see a difference in my muscle tone! I also became pregnant shortly after we stopped nursing but at 5 weeks had a miscarriage. I would love to have another baby, I loved being pregnant and breastfeeding, but my husband wants to wait awhile. So right now I’m just trying to enjoy my body while I have it and hope in the next couple years we have another little one on the way!

3 photos of me and 2 of my boobs at 20 months postpartum.

    Your boobs look like mine and I love my breasts. You have a nicer bottom, though. :)

    …and I know what you mean about missing breastfeeding. My daughter is 3 and I miss it soooooo much! She stopped nursing at 2 years 5 months. I would’ve nursed longer, but by then she was pulling on my hair and she was hurting my nipples, too. :|

    thank you all so much for the wonderful comments.

    S- I know you do not have to give cows milk at 1 year, at the time I was told by family it would “fatten her up”, which it didn’t! But I listened to them. It was just bad advice from the women in my family that didn’t know a thing about it. Now I know a ton about the benefits of extended breastfeeding(thanks to all my twitter friends) and will avoid premature weaning with the next. I still feel guilty about it, wish I could go back in time and give them all a big up yours and just continue feeding my baby.
