Re: Tired of pumping at work?
i totally know how you feel...though i've only been pumping at work for 3 months, there are times when i just don't feel like doing it. when i'm feeling this way, i look at a picture of my dd and think about all the wonderful benefits of breastmilk. another thing that has helped me is to have some parenting/baby magazines available to read while i'm pumping. i try to look at this time as a break that i need to take not only for baby, but for me...a time to relax and prepare baby's next meals.
my dd is going to be 5 months tomorrow...and my plan is to BF her for at least a year...and if that means that i have to pump 3 times a day at work for the next 7 months, so be it!
just remember, you are doing so much for your dd by pumping your milk for her. keep up the good job, mama!
