Noelle, what sort of work do you do?
I have never had to pump at work thankfully because I am terrible at getting that blasted thing to work, but everyone in the hospital biz seems to have babies at the same time, I bet those rooms get PACKED!
I do like the pamphlet and kellymom says to do, and can't get more than an ounce out combined.
I had more luck with the hand me down (had been through three kids) el-cheapo pump than I do with the Ameda Purely Yours, if I hadn't gotten through insurance I would return it.
My pump looks like it has been in a war zone. Its the same one I used for DS and I'm thankful it still works. I bought it off EBay never used, but opened so they couldn't return it. Even though it was still $200, it has saved me $1000s if I had to use formula from month 3 - 12 when I would have been back at work.
What else is new ladies? ANything fun?
I'm wanting to decorate for christmas now!! I'l probably end up doing it next week
I hate pumping. Kudos to you ladies!
We were supposed to get possession of our new house tomorrow! But the idiot sellers took too long to submit the Real Property Report and it wont be back from the bank in time. Ridiculous. After some finagling we are going to get Tenancy at Will, meaning we get to have access to the property as tenants until the deal closes. Because we have a bunch of furniture being delivered on Saturday, we couldn't wait and push possession back. Ugh. Like this had to be more stressful than it already was.
I agree on the Medela PIS, they are awesome. I didn't mind the hospital one either, I think it was Ameda. I don't mind pumping, especially at work. It gives me a few 15-20 minute breaks to relax (sometimes I even take a short cat nap). Pumping at home is more difficult with the kiddos, but I just try to time it on down times.
Sandra - that's so disappointing about your house! I'm glad you were able to work it out so you can get your new furniture there.
I'm almost unpacked!! I feel like the last few boxes are taking too long to do, but life has started back up...cooking, cleaning, laundry, work, kiddos and I'm lucky if I get to 1/2 of a box a day. Most of the essential are unpacked, except for my birth control! No DTD until I find those!
