For many new mothers, success or difficulty with breastfeeding is an emotive subject.
Take podcaster and media personality Zoe Marshall who posted on Instagram yesterday about the feelings that came with her baby's last breastfeed.
"On the day Ever turned 10 months (Easter Sunday), she decided to finish breastfeeding," Zoe writes.
"She had been dropping feeds gradually on her own terms and last week was the last one. I think she's our last child. So that was the last time I will feed. Such a wonderful experience for me. Will I miss it? Maybe one day. Do I miss it now? No. My health needed a break."
"I think becuse [Ever] wanted to move on and it was on her terms, I feel okay. She's a happy, healthy girl who is now on formula as well as three meals and one snack a day.
"It's so weird to have my boobs back (as tiny as they are). Do they get bigger again? Asking for a friend! I miss them already."
Zoe asked her Instagram community to tell her about their last breastfeed, and dozens of women commented with mixed emotions.
Mamamia spoke to eight women about their unique breastfeeding experiences, and what it felt like when they stopped.
