hello fellow pumping moms...
i have been exclusively pumping for just about 4 months now. For a variety of reasons my little man and I just could not get down a successful breastfeeding gig. It is so insulting when people make an assumption that breastfeeding is possible for all of us...I know that breastmilk is the best, which is why I am dedicated to pumping...and breastfeeding isn't an option.
My question is this... so far I have been pumping lots. First every 2 hours, then moved to every 3 hours, and am now at every 4 hours. I work and am sleep deprived. Will I mess myself and my supply up if I go overnight without pumping? I have no problems with supply at this point and in fact have a TON of milk stored up. I need some encouragement to keep going (want to do a full year). You are all fabulous! Thanks in advance.
