Just wanted to give you some support. I had to pump for a few months when my son had open heart surgery. The electric pumps never worked well for me, I preferred the hand-pump, Isis, I think was the name. It was an extremely stressful time, which I'm very glad we made it through. Telling yourself you'll be pumping for a whole year sounds very overwhelming. Try taking it day by day. Don't get discouraged, you are doing a wonderful thing for your child.
