    I packed my pump. It's in the hall closet at the new house. I haven't once felt like I made a mistake or wish I hadn't quit. It was time.


    Congratulations on your accomplishment, Susan! Nursing or pregnant or both for over 9 years - that's something for me to shoot for. I'm only at a measly 7.5 now.
    Seriously, I look up to your example and your perseverance!

    Susan! I don't really come on here very much anymore. But I randomly thought I'd check tonite. And I am all that you did such an AMAZING job pumping so long and that you totally owned your mutual decision with Gavin to quit. to you mama, .

    Lol hi! It has been so busy. I am! I returned my Symphony on the 5th and am getting by with the PISA. Not getting a whole lot (about 4 oz), but hoping to get it back up now that I have my PISA with the car adaptor back (I lent it to another mom).

    Miss you! You really did an awesome job!!! I have totally told my mom friends about you
