Shout out to moms who pump

I am finishing up a road trip with my 3 month old twins (1100 miles one way) so I have been pumping and feeding to make our trip shorter. I hate it and it is so frustrating. My silicone parts are on their last legs so I am getting half of what I was expressing at the beginning of our trip. I have so much respect for those of you who do this all the time.

Thanks! Pumping isn't for the faint of heart! I am impressed that you are nursing twins!!

Can you make a stop into babies r' us and get some extra parts?

Re: Shout out to moms who pump

It's certainly not my first choice for feeding my son, but I have accepted it as the closest thing to nursing he can do. In a million years I would not be choosing to suction my breasts and then have to bottle feed on top of it. I spend half my days either pumping an feeding and can never go an hour without doing one or the other. The only thing that keeps me going every day is the desire to give my special needs son the absolute best start I can give him before his surgery.

We were dying to get home so we didn't stop but I fed some formula to get us through. I think I was tired/dehydrated though because I didn't change the parts when I got home and I pumped normal amount.

KittyKat- you're giving him breastmilk, which is the best thing no matter how your sweet boy has to get it. I commend you for pumping though to give him the best.

Yep, eping pretty much blows in my opinion. I'm so jealous of women who can breastfeed directly!
