My DH is a well meaning yet thrifty man. But I don't know how to handle our lasted dispute. Please weigh in.

Here's the situation...

I was exclusively pumping for my baby until he was 2 mo. But because of allergies the baby couldn't have milk or soy,  So we went to formula but I kept pumping and storing because the doctor said the baby might grow out of his allergies.

Well I stoped pumping and it's been about a month since I pumped. And yesterday we found out that the baby grew out of his allergies already. We have about a month worth of breast milk stored. But my husband wants me to go back to pumping becauce the formula the baby is on cost almost $350 a month!

But I am not so sure ...

I am a full time student, Stay at home mom, and I watch children 3-4 days a week

I want to go back to pumping and I know its still possible but how can I when I have all this stuff going on and do I really want to live through all the discomfort again? I need advice.

Honestly, I agree with your DH. He's asking you to pump, not EBF. We all know breast milk is the best for baby, and 300 dollars a month is A LOT of money that you could be saving or spending on something that you need.
