After 16 months, I left for work today without my pump and feeling nervous, anxious, weird!! It has become a part of my life for so long and I am honestly scared to see if this will change my supply, or alter my nursing relationship with my son.
I will have to make it through the day without my afternoon "oxytocin break" and once again, start learning how to find stress relief and feel connected with my little guy in other ways when we are away. Feels weird to admit that I had somewhat gotten "addicted" to my pump-- at least psychologically... Let's hope I don't end up running home at lunchtime to get my afternoon pump in. No!! I can DO THIS!!
