So, I have about 60 oz of milk in my freezer and we are going out tomorrow night. We have tickets to a show and my mom is going to keep him. He eats a crapload in the evenings, so Im going to send 20 oz (1/3 of my storage for 5 hours of babysitting) of milk and whatever she doesnt have to thaw out she can just keep in her freezer. Im really liking the freedom that pumping gives me, but it is a really hard habit to get into. My two year old wants to pull at the horns and tubing, so I have to do it while she is napping or after she goes to bed if I dont want to fight her off. I dont want to sacrifice my sacred naptime sitting on a breastpump! I know that must sound so selfish, but I want to drink a beer on my porch or be in my garden, not attached at the boobs.
How and when do you pump, if you do? How much do you try to get a day, even though you know you dont have to go anywhere regularly?
