Well, it was only a matter of time that I would mention pumping and/or breastfeeding on this here blog. Both are a big part of my life now. During the week, 3 times a day, I hook up to my breast pump in this little empty office by my cubicle. It's nice, because I can leave everything set up. I literally walk in, sit down, hook up and pump away for approximately 15 minutes. I have it dialed in now. Pumping is a skill. You can't just expect your body to shift gears on it's own. Your baby will get way more milk out of you than any machine can. I have a different pump this time around and so far, I like it. Sure, it makes that funny noise, but what breast pump doesn't? I often wonder if my coworkers can hear the machine pumping away.
At Baby K's 3 month check up, our Ped gave us the green light to start giving him rice cereal at 4 months (which I do NOT agree with - more on that later). Amon other things, it made me incredibly sad to think that solid food time is just around the corner. How could time be going by so fast? I am not done with this infant stage. I am not ready for the next step. I am not done with exclusively breastfeeding. Someone press the pause button!
