  • Top 10 reasons pumping (instead of nursing) sux:

    Number 10... Double work - make the milk, then feed the baby

    Number 9... I'm a virtual shut-in - trips outside the home limited to 3 hours

    Number 8... During longer trips, pump interferes with car seatbelts and causes other drivers to stare

    Number 7... Regular washing of pump parts causing dishpan hands

    Number 6... Perpetually set-up pump in family room clashes with room decor

    Number 5... Guests upset when I which out my boobs and start pumping in their presence

    Number 4... Difficult to hug toddler or burp baby with bottles attached to chest

    Number 3... Identity crisis - woman or cow?

    Number 2... Nipples always feel like they're going to fall off

    And the #1 reason pumping sux....

    AF is back! ALREADY!

    I don't know how you are managing it...

  • Wow Rudi..
    You are much more patient than I could ever dream to be! I'd be formula feeding already if I were in your shoes..

    Any signs of progress with Lukas yet?

  • The first CS therapist didn't make any progress, so I'm waiting to see the one who "has never failed to get a baby nursing". Our appointment is this Sunday. She's a full-time nurse who only does this on Sundays, which is why she's so hard to get. We've just been in a holding pattern for the last three weeks.

  • Man, that just really does suck!

    You're doing such a great job hanging in there! I very sincerely hope that the CS can make a huge difference in things for you!

    Have you already tried having him nurse with a nipple shield?
