Hi I have an 8 month old son-Cooper who would never eat very well from me. I have been exclusivly pumping for him since he was 6 wks old.
I would really like to get him to a yr on breast milk alone but I am geting a little burned out with pumping and am hoping to find others who are in the same situation.
My biggest issue is the time factor (15 min every 3-4 hr and once at night). I also work full time and am VERY luck to have a job that is so flexible and allows me to pump as needed.
I am also still having to pump once in the middle of the night to keep my milk supply up. I will say that 8 months without a full nights sleep is starting to wear on me a little.
Any suggestions or support are greatly appreciated.
