On Monday morning, my breast pump completely stopped working! I thought that it has sounded a little bit funky lately, but I didn’t expect it to completely die on me! I was pretty upset about the it because I rely on my pump so much. I called Medela (which I always pronounced ma-dell-a, but when I called they pronounce it ma-deal-a), they said that the motor must have gone on it, which is only covered by a one year warranty 😦 For the next week or so, I am borrowing one, but then I am regaining my freedom and going to stop altogether. I have been considering giving it up soon anyway, so this is like a sign from above that the time has come.
Luckily, I am a milk
factory hoarder and have plenty of milk saved up to make it to little Kiwi’s first birthday.
Right now, I spend about an hour of every day pumping breast milk. What am I going to do with my new found “free time”??
