Pumping

Since Noah was born, I have been expressing breast milk for him. Over these past six months, I have truly developed a love/hate relationship with my pump. I loved the fact that it allowed me to give my little man the best food I could, but I hated the amount of time it took to pump and always feeling like we were attached at the hip (well not actually at the hip, but you get the idea).
I originally set a goal of pumping for six months, knowing that without a goal I would be more likely to quit. I thought six months was SO long, but here we are. I must admit that I am not the least bit sad about quitting. I gave Mr. Man the best I could and am now thrilled to say good-bye and pack the pump away.

  1. What an interesting milestone to reach! Good for you setting this goal ahead of time, and then reaching it. As with everything else you do, he will reap the benefits of you choosing to always do the best you can for him. Kudos!

  2. Cute picture :-) I must say these pumps have come a long way in the last ten years. Even though it would still be cumbersome, I imagine that it would be an advantage to be able to move around and be somewhat productive. Congrats on meeting your goal; Noah is all the more healthier because of your dedication!

  7. Pumping at work was the worst! My school principal and district superintendent walked into my classroom one lunch period while I was pumping. How mortifying! Thank goodness for my Hooter Hider.
