    pumping woes

    Advertisements
    i left a very important part to my madela double pump in the dishwasher this morning instead of bringing it to work... so i had to single pump with the pump and hand express the other, then switch off. sure wasn't my 8-10 oz normal pump session... gah.

    Well that stinks.

    Speaking of which. I tried to start pumping after being inspired by your mondo stash. Yeah I did it like 3x and I have 3 little measly bags in the freezer.

    woo hoo!! go steph!!!

    one of my friends said the other day "you could stop bfing NOW and still have milk to get her to 12 months" (an exaggeration LOL) but yea, i've acquired quite the stash though i've been slacking the last couple weeks with the traveling and holidays and am now having a harder time getting 10 oz per session LOL

    i better get back with the program LOL

    That sucks! OMG, I don't envy pumping, though. I remember when I tried that. Kudos to you for keeping it up.

    Wow, I remember pumping in the bathroom during lunch...I'd pump the whole damn time and get less than 4oz. I always struggled to make enough.

    Do you use the milk for her at daycare? I used to have a stash and then by the time I needed to use it it was sour. I was SO bummed. I ended up pumping new stuff for Jacob to use each day so I never built up a supply again because the stuff I would pump one day he used the very next and so on.
