I’ve decided that being a breastfeeding/pumping full time teacher and mom is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’ve never felt so out of place and questioning everything I do. A few questions that have come and gone and come again in the past 4 months…
How often should I pump?
Where should I pump so a student or my principal doesn’t walk in on me?
Should I breastfeed Collin?
Why does Owen only eat granola bars, dry cereal, and yogurt drinks?
Is he watching too much TV?
Why do I let Collin co-sleep when I know it’s going to a terrible habit to break?
Why is Collin such a terrible sleeper?
Do I let Collin sleep with a binky?
Why does Owen wine for absolutely everything?
Will I ever be able to eat dinner while not sitting on the floor?
I’m sick, so do I take Mucinex? I know it will dry up my milk a bit. Or do I suffer through and keep my milk supply up? And then potentially get pneumonia again?
Owen is sick…Collin is sick…Ian is sick…do I run for the hills and never look back?
