Pumped for the first time! Thank you mamas! **pic added**

WEll. I did it. I dusted off the Avent Isis I was given before DS was born and used it this morning for the first time. It wasn't too bad... and in 20 minutes I got 4 oz. from one side. woohoo.


Today for lunch DS will have a milkcicle in a mesh feeder for the first time ever.

I'll take pics!

Thank you all for your support. I woke up WAAAY early in the morning so I could try to pump in peace without my DH seeing me. He's so supportive, but he's one of those running-advice-sportscaster types" "There you go! You're doing a great job! Wow! Look at all that milk! You're doing great, Manda! Keep it up!".... just drives me a little nutty and I was already nervous doing it...

Anywho... thank goodness for you mamas! Now I've got 4 momcicles waiting in the freezer for DS!



Eta: ds loved It! I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad!He's just growing up!!

way to go! I'm with you though, and want nothing to do with the pump. I guess I have time before DS needs me to pump for cereal and what not.

Good job! LOL at the running commentary! Get some duct tape....
movaly: the mesh feeders look like this, but that's not the one I have.

AMEN sister! I tried and tried and tried to avoid the pump (I didn't even register for one... a friend gave us one she had never used.. so we had one in the house)... but I just don't leak like I used to... and like I said earlier... I'm NOT a fan of hand expressing (Mooooo.....)... but all in all it wasn't horrible. It will in no way replace my nursing time with DS... but I'm kind of exciting to see how he'll do with his milkies in frozen form!

Re: Pumped for the first time! Thank you mamas! **pic added**

Great job! The first time is the hardest, then it's kind of like "OK, I can do this." I was a serious pump-a-phobe with Calvin 'cause my first two never latched on so I exclusively pumped for months and months. I had a double electric one (talk about feeling like a cow!). So when my little guy latched on and actually nursed, I sobbed happy tears and vowed to never pump again! Then I realized that it is ok and can be useful for milk to mix in cereal or put in sippy cups. Once I conquered my fears, I look back and wonder why I was so nervous.

Whoa, this turned into a small novel! Sorry

One last note: I hope everyone has the opportunity to go on a field trip to a dairy farm as a nursing mother. I had so much empathy for those cows!

Ok, this really will be my last note! Your little guy is not so little anymore! What a healthy, happy lookin' little dude! Way to go!
