Small Vent

I know that pumping is a PITA, it really is more so when you only get approximately 10 oz. per day for the effort. Please tell me why MIL, who is a LD nurse, former NICU nurse and DH, the physician don't see the benefits to my efforts? Neither are exactly cheerleaders. Grrr.

  • Don't listen to them, you're doing great, pumping is hard work! I really don't understand how people can argue that breastmilk isn't the best for baby.

  • 10 oz of milk per day is great! I'm not getting the amount I wanted from pumping either. We just have to keep going....no matter who agrees that it's worth the effort.

  • I feel like my husband is always saying I can just quit bc he doesn't want to put pressure on me or stress me out. What I want to hear, though, is, "You can do it!"

    So.

    You can do it!

  • I HATE pumping with a passion and was able to do it for a year when I was working for DS1.  You can do it - push through - it goes by quicker then you think - 10 ounces is awesome - get a hand free pumping bra if you don't have won.  YOU ARE DOING GREAT!!!

  • You'll always have plenty of support here. You're doing great. And supply will increase. I use to struggle to get a couple ounces in a session. Then I'd consistently get 2oz, then 4oz ... 6oz.... I'm not up to 8oz in a session late night after not nursing for 46 hours and looking for larger containers. Stick with it. You're doing great.
