Time to Make the Cookies

That’s what one of my students at my job said to me the other day. “Time to make the cookies”. He was referring to me taking the walk to my curtained room to pump my milk. I actually liked the phrase. Better than what another student told my boss, “oh she is milking” LOL. While I sit here “making cookies”, I am reminded of how my job, coworkers, and students helped me accomplish 4mths of breastfeeding. It wasn’t easy, but a little bit of determination and a good attitude will help you a lot. Everyone thought I was crazy for going back to work at 4wks. Even crazier for going back to school at 6wks postpartum. I was warned about nipple confusion and failing at breastfeeding. Thank goodness I have a thing about proving people wrong. When I home, my baby gets all of me and he truly loves his “daddy time” when I’m not there. Now that my schedule has changed, he’ll ignore me and look to daddy cuz I’m trying to get in on their time! Putting my 2wks in at work was really hard for me but I’m excited for the changes that are coming with it. Lil’ man just has to be ok with mommy being home from now on! 🙂
