note--since I am still pretty new I am not sure what is considered a TW but this seems like something that might fit.
I made the decision today that I will be quitting nursing/pumping for my 10-month-old. The pain has just gotten too bad to result in half of what he drinks a day. My freezer stash is almost gone. So today I bought my first tub of formula and we are going to give him a bottle of it a day for now to supplement until I am done tapering. I am so heartbroken that I wasn't able to make it to a year like I had originally planned but at the same time I feel like I am forcing it for me and not him. I guess it is better that he seems very okay with not nursing rather than if he were to be trying to nurse while I am trying to quit. I know it's better for me and both babies as a result. It's just so hard to stop something that I have been doing for my boy since he was minutes old. I know I am lucky to have been able to do it as long as I have. I'm just going to miss it.
