    This week is driving me nuts. I am so glad I only have 1 more pump before the weekend. My pump is making a funny noise not, prob switch it out with the one at home this weekend. Still not getting enough milk and still have multiple clogs, tomorrow me and the babe might just have to spend the day in bed, he is teething and going thru a growth spurt so he is attached at the boob.

    Hopefully next week will be better.

    I somehow got ahead a whole bottle. Not upset about it, except that I need to stay on top of things so I can get it used up before the lipase gets it.

    Gav only drinks the BM at night now right? Will he take it during the day in a sippy so it does not go bad or need to be frozen?

    Had to go into work this morning, so I grabbed my pumping stuff, but I forgot horns I hand expressed, but only got 1.5 oz. So, I'm going to try to squeeze in a 3rd pump today.

    I also think my pump is making funny noises. When I've got the cycles dial turned up at the beginning, it stutters sometimes. I'm thinking I should have one of the local lactation consultants check it out. The warranty is up on March 1, so I want to make sure it's okay!

    I forgot my pump parts the other day, too! But I'm just not adept at hand expressing to even get an ounce. :/ had to run down to Babies R Us, buy new pump parts, run back to work and sterilize, then pump. Lost a good chunk of my workday to that.

    Also, totally different topic: please tell me I'm not the only one who's put the horns on, put the membranes on the horns, and then started pumping only to realize that I forgot to screw bottles to the membranes. LOL

    I have never done that, but I have left the membranes off before. I have also forgotten to plug it in.

    Oh, yes. I've also forgotten to turn it on, plug it in, hook the tubes up and left off membranes. And pumping is supposed to be easier

    Yes, and I gave him some today, so I'm only a half bottle ahead now. I do like the cushion.
