Wednesday, 23 April 2014: One Year, Three Weeks and One Day Old.
Sadly, I had to make the call to stop expressing milk at work today.
Even though I’ve only been back in the office a couple of weeks, I’m already feeling swamped and finding time to express is becoming more and more difficult.
Although I know I can get everything done at work during my part time hours, it means using every minute effectively to ensure no time is wasted.
It feels contradictory to put “time wasting” and “breast feeding” in the same sentence, and it kills me to think I’m putting work ahead of Ayla.
But the benefits of working part time are outweighing the need for me to be religious about Ayla’s breast milk consumption, so it seems like my days of sitting in the storeroom pumping milk are over.
