My body creates, houses, nurtures and nourishes life. That is awesome.

I meant you should give yourself a treat every time you pump. Favorite drink or snack? Spending the time watching videos on youtube?
I am so over it....DS is going on 14mos and I'm just producing less and less...
It's a struggle for me and I just want to stop but he gets cranky without his bottle .
But, hang in there Momma....The really only time I get to visit the forums is when I'm pumping - so that's my treat!
We've made it 1 YEAR
A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three. ~Grantly Dick-Read

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies - Damn it, you've got to be kind. - Kurt Vonnegut
I saw this thread and had to join in. I'm not a working mom, but need to pump for my newborn and wondering if there's any end in sight... being home alone all week & trying to find time to feed him AND pump and eat, myself, or even get out of the house is trying. And you can never stop! Sigh.
I hate pumping, too.
Yeah, good job all of you who are pumping for your babies. I thought we'd be better at nursing now and not need to but I still wake myself up every 3 hrs at night and then do a power pump session and every 2-3 hrs during the day to get my lo her milk. I'm looking forward to her birthday when I said I'll be done pumping.
Nursed my sweet daughter 3 years, 3 mos.
just think, your baby willbenefit from your sacrafice.
I feel you though, just went back to work andpumping really sucks!
