pumping

Postby jessm » Mon Oct 22, 2012 9:18 am

I'm SO over pumping. Like so so SO over it. Today I didn't even get 10 mL from the right side and about 2.5 oz from the left at my MORNING pump. I used to get 4-6 oz! And then I had sent DS with formula today because I had no BM and he drank almost 8 oz! So he wants big bottles now. I barely pump 8 oz in one day! I wish I could quit, but I"m terrified I won't be able to have a good supply for when I'm with him. *tear*

I only pump a few times a week (to have a bottle on hand just in case), and it's for the birds. Kudos to you for doing it as often as you do!

I don't loathe pumping as much, but I'm getting there. I pump about 4-5 times a day (morning before I leave for work so dh has a fresh bottle for her, pump 3 times at work, and around midnight again if I'm engorged.) in a typical session I'll get 5 oz, but here lately I've only gotten a couple during my morning session and it's irritating. I just have to keep reminding myself that the pros outweigh the cons and it'll all be worth it in the end. Keep your boobs....er, chin, up! Haha.
