Dear Bewbs...

I am only asking for 6 more weeks. 6 more weeks of pumping twice a day at work, 6 more weeks of nursing 4 or more times a day on the weekend (that will be the hardest to let go), and I know you can do it. After that, you only have to work between the hours of 7PM-7AM, and you will get a break the rest of the day. You can be my little vampires and sleep peacefully all day, if you can just hold out and give me at least 6oz a day for 6 more weeks.

Pretty please? I'm just not ready to give up on you yet, but you are making it really tough to love you right now. I appreciate everything you've done, and I know Jacob does, too, but the last 6 months have been tough and at times, fruitless. As much as I am dreading the W-word and the long transtition we will take with that, I am at least ready to admit that 1 year is enough for my full-time nursing attempts. Things would be different if we were home all day, but this working and pumping...I am so, so over it.

Especially when I spend 15 minutes crouched at my desk, typing one-handed, to only get 2 ounces.

We can do a little better than that, right?


  1. Come on bewbs, listen to her!!! You have done a fantastic job, momma!

  2. That breastfeeding business is something else and I should know...I had a breastfeeding business. It was situated right behind my study bookshelf. It's called...the Milk Cave. I didn't mention in my silly post that I also have several nice ladies pumping breastmilk back there, too. In all seriousness, breastfeeding is a pain in the boob! I know. I breastfed both of my sons for a year. On another note, you are TOO kind! Wow! You were super complimentary about my silly blog and I appreciate it more than you know! I am just a certified nutcase. It's nice to know there are people out there like you who enjoy it. I live near Houston, Texas, I'm 35, graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, am the oldest of two daughters and work part-time as a speech pathologist. There's some information for you! Anytime you are in the Houston area, stop by for some milk & cereal! I'd love to meet you. :)
