Retired my pump

Postby MominMD » Fri Apr 13, 2012 9:43 am

I retired my pump this week. I will admit I was both sad and glad to do so. I hate pumping, but it is a necessary evil.

I am sad because it means Henry will get no more BM. I gave him his last bottle of it on Wednesday morning. I was down to pumping just one time at work and I was lucky to get 2 ounces. It just was not worth the time and effort anymore for that little.

My supply has greatly diminished in general lately, and I really barely respond to the pump. I am still nursing Griffin first thing in the am, but that is all. I do not know how long he will continue with that, but I will continue as long as he will.
