I’m going to go ahead and say I am proud of myself. 4 months in, 5 weeks back at work and I am still exclusively providing my son with breast milk. I know that I am very lucky to be able to do this. My goal was one year so I am hoping to get that far as it is a tedious task. Worth it but tedious.
I know that I am even more fortunate to have a private office, with blinds installed over every window for privacy. I ran into a woman in the bathroom who was washing out pump parts. I striked up a conversation and found out that she has to pump in the bathroom. YUCK! How uncomfortable and gross. I felt so bad. I really want to share my office but I can’t. So, I did the next best thing and contacted management and insisted they at least put a chair in the big stall for the woman. I mean, she either has to sit on the floor or on the toilet seat. That is not ok.
3 ounces down, 11 to go. I swear my whole days revolves around getting my 14 ounces of pumped milk. Everything else is one big blur.
