I just wanted to update with how inks have been going for me...


I went back to work three weeks ago. It's been going really well. As the previous poster wrote, I am very guarded about my pumping time. I pump three times a day. I nurse the baby at 7am, I go to work and pump again at 9:30 for 15 min (5-6oz total), 11:30 for 15 min (2oz total) and 1:30 for 15 minutes(4oz total). Then I fly outta there around 3:15, about fifteen minutes after school and nurse baby as soon as I get home.



My pumping room is a single, private bathroom used administration. It's got a wall cabinet, a fride, a small table/shelf thing that I just keep my pump sitting on all week, and a chair for me.


When I go in to pump, I put on my headphones and my hands free bra. I set the timer in my phone for 15 min although. Will pump longer if I happen t have a let down right before the timer goes off.


It hel

ps me to have everything set up for the next day early in the evening.


Baby G shows some irration at night with my let down. He is a little frustrated that its slower than the bottle but I think we'll get though it.


I want to thank all you ladies from the bottom of my heart for all your helpful posts and for encouraging me.  I'll check in again soon.
