Slave to the pump :(

DS starting refusing my breast so now I am a pump slave and I hate it. Any ideas to make the time go by faster while pumping?

Depends on where you are pumping. When I'm at work I like taking my cell phone with me and play games or look at pictures. You could read a book. Maybe write notes to your son to put in his keepsake/baby book.

I let pumping be my lazy time. I'd surf the internet, read a book, watch a favorite show, etc.

Re: Slave to the pump :(

Definitely used pump time as my time out to be lazy. Thank God for that. But I also wanted to say, I ep'ed for a year. And it gets better. The longer you go the easier it becomes. When I hung up the horns I was so sad.

My Mood:
Things I do while I pump:

At work-read or browse on my phone (games, FB, DS, etc)
At home-read, tv, phone, eat

I see it as a little "me" time b/c I wouldnt get any otherwise!
