Confession #27: One time I accidentally sterilized my breast pump tubing. And it melted.
Confession #28: During my second pumping session on Thursday, Mrs. Right started bleeding....like a lot. I was reading my book when I looked down and saw a thick ring of blood in the breast shield tunnel; then I saw blood dripping down into the connector, pooling in the valve. ::gag:: I stopped pumping immediately, and, thankfully, no blood dripped down into the milk. Commence freak out. I called four lactation consultants (yes, FOUR, and not one of them answered), my OB, another breastfeeding momma (hi Stacy!), and my momma. My Momma Bear suggested that I call the pump manufacturer, and that's when I finally got my answer. Apparently my breast pump, The Swing, can only be used with one type of connector/pump body.... Meaning, my Medela Accessory Value Pack is proving to be less and less of a value.
Confession #29: Today marks one full week of no walk-ins while pumping. Hoorah! Maybe my barricade is working?
Happy Friday, dears! I hope everyone has a great weekend. If this is your first time visiting for my ohsobrilliant series Confessions of a Pumping Mother, you've got loads to catch up on!!
