Breastfeeding Exhaustion!

Due to some medical and back-to-work issues, I’m currently exclusively pumping for my 11 week old daughter. Some days I look at my pump and think, “NOT AGAIN!!” When I’m on the 5th pumping session of the day sometimes it’s hard to work up the enthusiasm to keep going. I found a great blog about the trials and tribulations of breast feeding and wanted to share. A perfect reminder that what we do is worth it, no matter the method of delivery or frequency!

  1. Fabulous post! I used to give myself a treat for pumping- like reading a book (Kindle makes it easier to read), playing a time-suck game on my phone…

    1. I just started re-reading a book on my kindle during pump sessions!! I don’t know why it just now occurred to me to do that. So not only am I doing something good for the baby, I’m enjoying some downtime for me as well 🙂

  3. Huge props to you! Luckily, I’ve been able to work from home since my son was born, so I was able to nurse him exclusively. I did pump and save up a stash for a while, but I absolutely hated pumping! I can’t imagine if I had to pump exclusively…I’d like to think I would do it for my son, but I’m soooo glad I didn’t have to. You’re doing an amazing job for your sweet baby!

  4. I pumped for my son for about a year because he had latching problems due to being a premi and an at the time, stressful household that did not make natural breast feeding workable. I found along with reading I could successfully embroider stuff, write bills, etc. I agree, it’s a labor of love because it sure is boring as heck.
