I confess, I HATE pumping.
Going back to work full time really soon. (Supposed to be next week but I am going to beg for a couple more weeks, Baby isn't even six weeks and we haven't found day care still.)
So, I am pumping to build up all the frozen milk to bring to daycare when she gets there. I am pumping a 2 - 3 times a day, getting about 4- 6 ounces each time.
I am so lucky that WIC is lending me a double electric pump, a Hygeia, and it definitely makes it easier. But, it is not pleasant. I want to cuddle with DD after we nurse, not plug into a pump. Anybody else?
But, I am going to keep at it. Its been about a week and I want our little pumpkin to have breast milk of course.
DP gave her her first bottle last night to prepare her in case it took a while, and they did a wonderful job. I nearly cried though. I confess. Part of it was happiness and seeing DP have that wonderful moment with her. And, of course, part of me was a tad bit jealous.
Anybody else have advice, support or complaints about pumping? Pumping to track your supply? Share!
I can't even imagine how I am going to hook up to this thing once I go back to work, LOL! (I don't have an office job at the moment, but work mostly on the road)
