"I'll just pump before I leave the house". Nice thought..
- As a parent, you will never EVER be on time again. So nothing "just" about pumping in advance. What I found was that getting ahead in my early engorged days extremely encouraging. Pumping a little here and there rather than in a panic when I was going to leave my baby was super helpful in keeping stock. No scientific reason why, it just put me in a better frame of mind.
According to Kelly Bonyata, BS, IBCLC, pumping as soon as possible is also helpful in your milk supply.
- Breast pumps SUCK. They hurt, they are awful at getting milk out and it's an added chore to your already CRAZY life.
- If you think it's har to find a place to nurse, it is even more of a pain to try to find a place to WARM A BOTTLE in public.
- Finally, WASHING BOTTLES of breastmilk sucks just as much as pumping.
So do yourself a favor.. order your KOOÏ COVER, take control and create your own PEACE IN PUBLIC TO BREASTFEED that precious babe of yours. You can thank me later.
