    BLARG!!!

    I will throw me a party when I can get RID of that thing! I have so much confidence in my breastfeeding relationship, but pumping always causes the most stress for me. I always have to hope I can pump enough.

    One thing to be grateful for: as long as I'm pumping, my job allows me to shove all my hours into four days and I get three consecutive days off. I will go back to five days when I stop.

    Sometimes I want to give up. Sometimes it is just too much to handle, but when I look at my baby girl I try to keep going.

    Just do mama. Even if it's a PITA. Look at that thriving baby and carry on.

    As long as it takes mama. Most carry on until about a year or so, others have to keep going a bit longer because their babes need the nutrition or are not that interested in solids.

    I was actually going to post something similar today. I have days when I just am SO SICK of pumping, I just want to quit. Hang in there. I just try to remember, the feeling (for me anyway) will pass and tomorrow will be better. But, I sure look forward to my no-pump days on the weekend.
    Today is just one of those days, KWIM?

    oh ok my daughter loves solids but still nurses quite a bit so i suppose i will continue to pump until she is a year and then quit after that? So then they don't get bottles anymore after that?

    I don't know mama. There are no hard and fast rules. If she will take a sippy, then by all means. My DD was almost 3 when she gave up the bottle for naps. Nothing else went in but milk. She would have other fluids in a sippy, but only milk in her bottle. I played it by ear.
