Is it a bunch of weightlifters or something?
I did the interview with the CA bank Tracie and they only care that the milk itself is less than 6 months old, not the baby's age :shrug
only got 2.5oz at school today. Mondays suck for me, which makes me think I need to be pumping on the weekends. But when the weekends roll around I always find excuses not to... :(
Looks like I am getting a fair amount right now at least!
I think I'm entering the bargaining phase of mourning with giving up the pump...Originally I told myself I'd go to 18 months, then to the end of March. Now that I've started weaning off the domperidone, I find myself adding in more excuses to keep pumping, like, "If I'm off the domp and my supply is still over 8 oz a day, maybe I'll keep pumping into April..." or "If I'm still pumping 8 oz a day at the end of March maybe I'll try to go down to 2 times a day with the same amount of time until I only get 4 oz a day and then stop..."
To be honest, I'd love some sign that my fertility's back after all this time...Getting pregnant would certainly inspire me to stop pumping! :lol
I wish I was one of the ones to not get AF back... I got it at like 5 months pp. But I guess if it hadn't returned and I wanted to get pregnant that wouldn't be too nice either!!
W's growth spurt is huge right now. So here I sit at 930 pumping, thinking I might have to add it to my routine. I want to donate so I want to keep adding to the freezer, but I also want W to get as much fresh milk as possible. Right now only on Monday's he gets frozen. I have tried to leave it in the fridge for Monday on Friday but the lipase gets to it before then.
Arg I hate my pump.
I'm dragging my pump along on a visit to see my parents Thursday, in case I get super uncomfortable. I will probably be gone from DS about 8 hours. We nurse on demand at home... do you ladies think I should pump beforehand to leave milk for him while I am gone? Or just pump while I am gone and give it to him later? He has had cow's milk already and eats tons of solids.
Sam will start going all day with none of my milk Thursday if I counted right. I say he will be fine but maybe leave 3-4 oz in case things get out of control.
I'd maybe leave one bottle and then pump and feed whatever I got later.
I'm looking at a trip in March overnight for some CE and thinking of doing exactly this.
