on a side note…

this girl here saved me.

It’s hands down the best manual breast pump I’ve ever used and believe me, I’ve tried quite a few. I’ll go to town and say it’s even better than the hospital medela I used all the time while Damiano was in the hospital. It’s simply fantastic. No hand cramps, 10 minutes pumping yielded 5 oz or so, and bear in mind that I’ve been breastfeeding for 14 months now. oh, and no pain. No pain whatsoever. I’m slightly riled because only now I come across this wonder of Swiss technology, now that I’m about to wean Santiago forever. Oh well.

    I had to wean M. very suddenly b/c I became preggo with W. It was so painful to do it quickly, I had to stick lettuce was it (I think I’ve blocked it out) – no cabbage! in my bra – the lactation consultant said that helped with the pain. the things we mamas do.

    So happy to have my breast back to being mine but I do not think they will every look the same

    Sherri it must have been cabbage. eheh. I’m trying to wean Santiago gradually and so far it’s been quite alright. He nurses twice during the night and twice during the day and it’s more of a comfort thing than a nutritional thing… and when I was away he drank cow’s milk and he was just fine… But by the end of September, when university starts, I’ll have him completely weaned.

    Cricket, I honestly don’t care since they have served their purpose. What I’ll do when I’m rich is have a nice reduction back to an A cup and a little lift :D
