Just two days ago I was talking with friends and they were talking about all the bottles of breastmilk they found in the back of their freezer that they'd pumped and never used ages ago. I just wanted to cry. The most I've ever been able to pump is 2oz. Usually after pumping for an hour (both sides) I have 1/2 oz. At this point everyone says, "Have you seen a lactation consultant?" Yes, about 8 in my life. I know what to do and how to do it, and they are always surprised that I'm having so much trouble when they see me do it all perfectly. "You shouldn't be having pain/trouble", they say. Thanks. Thanks a lot.
I just like being close to you, and I want to give you the very best, but I'm not going to fight with you anymore. I give up, and you win, and I can't stop feeling sad about it.
