I am feeling so dumb right now. I have been meaning to get replacement parts for my pump and haven't gotten around to it. Now I have a broken pump and an 8 hr shift at work. I'm panicking about my supply but not sure if I can realistically ask for another day off.
I had to clean the tubes on my pump (I keep getting milk in there, but that's another issue) and this time I think they were still too wet and the bacteriostatic filter got wet. Now there is zero suction.
I am at work until 6pm. My supply has been dwindling and I have been working so hard to keep up. But I've also been taking a lot of days off because my baby (5 months) has been sick.
Can I survive a day without pumping? Will my supply recover? Or do I tell my boss I need to go home today? Luckily, I have the next 2 days off so it will just be the one day w/o pumping. (fingers crossed replacing the filter will fix all)
