spilled milk

Who ever came up w the saying "don't cry over spilled milk.". Was never a pumping mom. I'm producing 20-30 ml per day now meaning I achieved my 1oz goal. Yesterday I spilled almost half my yield. Once I start to put her to breast more ill likely stop pumping. It's exhausting and sometimes discouraging. The neurodevelopmentalist on Friday was encouraging and applauded my efforts. That validation helped as I cried over spilled milk.

  1. I can't even imagine how devastating that must have been!!! Keep it up though... you're doing so much good by even trying. It's more than 99% of us do!!!

    Just remember your reasoning for even wanting to do this... and know that when you do start feeding directly from you (not pumping)... it'll be so incredibly awesome and you'll be crying for other reasons. :-)

    HUGS and keep up the GREAT job!!!
