    pumping woes

    Advertisements
    I am so tired of pumping. LOL

    But I will keep doing it 2-3 x / day until she's 1.

    I just needed to whine about it. I wake up at 5:30 every morning to pump for her first bottle... then I pump around 12:30 (or a bit earlier) and then sometimes in the middle of the afternoon, depending on how much time I have here.

    She's been on a breastmilk kick lately, too, at school.

    And I have little to no stash left... most of what I do have is from Jan/Feb and a bit from March. And I'm scared to let her have the stuff from then.

    Sometimes I want my boobs back. But I'm determined to make it to one year. At least.

    You're doing great Bex! I hated pumping and only did a handful of times. You should be proud making it this far, I have no doubt you'll make it to your year mark.

    for the support!!! Just some days it's like...

    Now PERSONALLY for ME, the bond with Ellie at this age is much stronger than my bond was with Z at this age. My mom swears it's because Ellie is BF and relies on me so much like that. And I'm so happy about how close of a bond I have with her. But some days, I just want my body back.

    So I'll just chant my breastfeeding mantra and quit my whining

    I know exactly how you feel. Of course I don't have any other kids (yet!) but I think Z & I have a great bond. I don't know how to explain it but it makes me happy.

    I also know the "I want my booobsssss back feeling" too , but believe me once Z weaned herself it was SO hard on me. I didn't think it would be but it was. She took it so much better than I did

    I have a feeling it'll be that way here. I'm counting down until 1 but once it gets here, I'll be sad.

    You are doing so good. I look up to you for breast feeding and especially pumping so that you can work.

    do you use a double pump?

    I know what you mean about pumping. How much easier would life be if kids did not need to eat?
