I'm proud of myself. Following her NICU stay for a lung infection following birth, dd began rejecting the breast. Not even my lactation consultant could help. I took to pumping, but my supply dropped so low without dd nursing. I can't even pump/express enough to measure, but I save every drop.
Despite having DMER, despite everyone in my family telling me to quit, despite only having maybe an ounce frozen after weeks of trying...I still sit here, pumping my heart out. She's nearly 1, but I will give her my milk as long as I can. She loves it. I'm actually pumping at the moment =]
I never give myself credit for what I do for DD, but I think I deserve to recognize myself for this...
oh, and just now, I felt a familiar tingle in my right breast...the let down tingle! Been forever since felt this!
