Thanks for the reply on reverse cycle.
Mommy to 3 boys
Your schedule sounds like a good place to start.
*SPENCER* happy Mami of two precious princesses!
First of all -- welcome back =)
Second is what jumped out most at me in your post -- the word obligation. It really is a strong word, and I feel if you do this out of "obligation" you'll end up resenting it and stressing yourself out. I don't feel pumping
I guess I use the word obligated because as when he was just 6 -8 weeks gestation is when his lung tissue did not form correctly. I think or thought that it was something I did wrong for this to happen. I know that what he has is rare and they are not sure why it happens but I do feel obligated as his mother to do what is best for him and breastfeeding is one of
I sooooooo know that mommy guilt. I formula fed my son and he ended up with a terrible milk allergy. I'll always wonder if it was my fault =( But in the end we all do the best we can. And know that your sons lung problems are NOT your fault! I can tell just by reading the concern you have for your son that you're a GREAT mom!
BEst of luck tomorrow!!!
So I did it....I dropped
It gets easier, I promise.
Ugh, leaving the babies is impossible! I hate that feeling.
I'm glad its going well enough. Its good to give yourself the practice runs. I went back to work 3 weeks earlier than I expected (3 weeks postpartum) so I had no practice-- and it was a MESS!
I don't think it ever gets eaiser leaving the babies, but eventually you get more used to it, as i"m sure you know.
I think that last nursing session in the morning is a comfort thing lol... they can feel something is up. Pepper always eats one last time, no longer than 7 minutes or so, lol I think she knows its the "last real meal"
Hope all is well when you return!!
So here is an update on my first week back
Wow, great job!
