Now that I am pumping three times a day, it allows me more sleep and my breasts are finally clog duct free and feel like I can only imagine they are supposed to feel. However, now that I am only pumping 3 times a day, I am only getting enough milk for 5 bottles. She eats 8+ bottles a day. So, tonight I am going to have to take some milk out of the freezer, and it’s killing me. I counted tonight and I have about 150 bags of milk stored – with an average of 4 ounces in each, that’s about 20 days of milk. Margeaux is almost 8 weeks old. So we’d be shy of the 3 month mark, especially if I quit pumping altogether. I guess the fact of the matter is, she’s going to have to go on formula at some point, so it doesn’t really matter when. I don’t know why this is such a struggle. I guess because I am making a decision for her based on what’s more comfortable for me.
