The Pumpinator

I have VERY VERY little breast milk left, but even still, I am trying to pump two to three times per day. In doing so, I manage to scrounge up between 80 and 100 ml of breast milk to feed PK once a day. I used to find pumping quite inconvenient, since I was often tethered to the couch or the bed by the AC adapter while I pumped. Then, one day, a lightbulb went off in my head. My breast pump can also be powered by after I put in a set of rechargeable batteries and since I can attach the pump to my bra, I am officially mobile! Of course now I look like a pumping freak walking around the house. I play with PK, cook, eat, and write blog entries while I pump. This evening, I even opened the front door for the hubby while I was pumping. (I locked him out by putting the latch on the inside - oopsie doodlie!)
