1. It's so time consuming!! Takes about 5 minutes just to set it up, 15 minutes to pump, then another 5 minutes to take everything apart and clean.
2. The designated conference room for pumping is so cold that I think I have frostbite on my nipples now.
3. I miss my bonding time with my baby girl and listening to the annoying pumping sound just reminds me that I can't be with her right now.
4. It seems as though my milk supply has suffered just the last two days from lack of nursing and I've experience my first blocked ducts. I had to spend a hour last night nursing on my left breast just to get them unclogged. It worked thankfully, but my dwindling milk supply is stressing me out. I've never had an issue with milk supply and it just upsets me that I now have to work at getting it back up. I love my pump, but now I'm wondering if its not powerful enough for me. The first day, I was able to pump a lot (about 14 oz), but now I've noticed yesterday and today that I'm not pumping as much. Sophia seems to still get the amount she needs, but I still am not pumping enough to send to daycare. I only have 10 oz. frozen and I pump about 8-11 oz. a day now and I have to send 16 oz. per day to daycare. Ugh! So frustrating.
Sorry just needed to rant!
