Should I keep going?


When my baby decided he would have nothing to do with breastfeeding at the age of two weeks, I decided I would pump exclusively to make sure he got the nutrition he needed.  For those of pump, you know, it’s no easy thing.  It’s  uncomfortable and it’s time consuming.  It’s also a God-send for those who can’t breastfeed.  I told myself, if I could just get him to four months, that would be great.  When I got to four months, I decided I could keep going because it’s really best for them to get breast milk until six months.  So I vowed to keep going.  This weekend my sweet boy turned six months.  And to be honest, I’m really sick of this pumping thing. And it’s becoming increasingly difficult for me to find the time to do it at work.  But, while my supply is decreasing, the milk is still there and I feel guilty stopping.  So everyday, I ask myself, should I keep going?  I haven’t decided.  What do you think?
