Small goals are definitely the way to go right now. Sometimes, I would have to take 1 feeding at a time. Thinking long term can be very daunting. I did not have the warm fuzzies until I was a few months in. I would pump just enough before feedings so as not to be engorged. I would also pump after feedings to build my stash, but I also ended up with a huge oversupply. So, I may not be the best to listen to. I would take it one day at a time for now. It really does get better. I love not having to get up and make a bottle. Breast milk is always the right temp and ready to go!
