These days I mostly pump because of my very long work hours, and I am super grateful to have that flexibility, but I find it a hassle. I canít wait until I donít have to wash those dang pump parts anymore!

    Congratulations again and enjoy that baby.
    Yes washing pump parts is a pain! Although you can actually put it in the fridge and only wash once every 24 hours. Itís definitely a hassle compared to breastfeeding only or formula only, not sure Iíll make it to a year with pumping to be honest, I think my goal is make it to 6 months then move to formula only.

    J went back to work this Monday after having had 12 weeks off. I thoroughly appreciated his help in the first couple of months and still do but it was nice to be ďaloneĒ too if you know what I mean, I thought I would scramble without him but I didnít, I just planned ahead more knowing I didnít have someone here to help at any moment so Iíd plan my meal time, pump time, and other things more than before and it was totally fine. I was also quicker in doing things baby related because I wasnít discussing it with someone else I just did it, so in that sense it felt easier.

    Iíve also been going to a local mums group for a few weeks now, met some nice down to earth ladies and definitely appreciated this week for an opportunity to get out of the house and socialise! Especially when majority of my friends donít have kids.

    Very nice - my husband took two weeks and then started traveling a few days a week for a couple of months - it was hard to solo parent!! I went back to work -part time -after 7 years (right after I turned 50!). I did a moms group a couple of times where we took our babies to the park in strollers and we exercised. I met a few people but too much of the exercise involved leaving the stroller with the instructor -another mom and not certified in childcare, etc -so that didn't work for me but I hear you about meeting other people and I'm glad you like these moms!
