Just venting here and maybe needing a word of support. I started a new job 4 weeks ago that I knew would be intense and would challenge my BF-ing relationship with my 9 month old daughter, but for a variety of reasons (including the economy) it was the best choice for our family. I have just survived my first two-day business trip pumping every four hours and having to explain to 2 old dudes traveling with me what the hell I'm doing in the bathroom for twenty minutes every 4 hours (they were understanding of course because nothing shuts up an old dude like saying you are going to pump). I am so sick of pumping. I have my eyes on her one-year birthday when I can start to pump wean and not have to lose an hour or more of billable time every day to THE PUMP. I am exhausted from working so many hours and am thinking of the six-week supply I have in the freezer and wondering if I could pump wean early, and then I think, but I've come this far . . . . and my kid is doing SO GREAT. Okay, rant over. I will try to make it another 3 months.
