I stopped pumping 5 days ago...mostly because I was getting burned out from the whole experience. I had been pumping 4 times a day (before school, at lunch, after school, and before bedtime) since Hadley was 3 days old. I planned my days around my pumping schedule.
Pumping was a huge time commitment (1 hour EVERY SINGLE DAY) for nearly 10 months. I wanted to give up many times, but I persevered. I'm thankful that pumping gave Hadley some health benefits.
Over the next couple months, Tal and I will continue to help Hadley learn how to use a sippy cup and then start transitioning her to whole milk after she turns 1 year old.
