Over it

Post by Penguin » Fri Sep 25, 2015 7:44 pm

C's been with daycare/ babysitter/ Daddy for nine days in a row.
I don't usually sulk about stuff like this but I've really been feeling it this week. So over the pumping.

What a marathon. Do you get a few days at home now?

Totally understandable. You've done a great job to pump for so long. Is there an end in sight?

Yes, thankfully. My extra work finished up yesterday. Back to normal which is three days per week.
I've been trying to work out if I can drop back to one pump per day. It seems a bit too early, but I think I'm going to risk it and see if it works.

Well it seems I should be able to manage with one pump per day, which is good!
