I just saw two friends' breast pump statuses coincidentally in a row and was reminded how this page started 😂 💓 👶
A friend is becoming a first time mom to twins! She is overwhelmed with the options and the price tags of pumps, but thinks that it will be necessary if she wants any success at breastfeeding.
I hated pumping, in retrospect, probably due in large part to my pump, so I am no help here. What would you recommend? Brand? Model? General tips?
I actually have heard of this, but didn't really have enough stored up to be able to time it out. Cool though.
So creepy. (And that's, like, the *least* sexy thing!)
I begrudgingly went back to work, pump-in-hand, when my baby was 12 weeks old. Filling bottles was a struggle, to say the least. Now, when breakfast is waffles and lunch is soy-nut butter sandwiches, I work from home. The irony of this is not lost on me...not in the least.
I was going to say that I had NO problem at all saying goodbye to mine (saying hello was more of a grunt for me), but this is not quite what you think...read on.
(Side note: Am I the only one with the Boyz II Men song in my head now?)
What type of breast pump did/do you use? Would you recommend it?
Have you ever pumped (your breasts, that is) right outside the gallery where the Mona Lisa hangs in the Louvre? She has.
