Don't cry over spilled milk

Whoever made up that old adage obviously didn't pump breastmilk 5 times a day! I had a bottle of breastmilk (6 oz) in the fridge that I needed to put in a bag to freeze and as I went to get it out of the fridge I wasn't paying attention I guess and somehow I knocked it over, it flew off the shelf in the fridge and onto the wood floor in the kitchen. As it hit the floor, the plastic lid bust open and out spilled 6oz of my hard earned liquid gold!! I was like...."Nooooooooooooooooooo, I worked hard for that." Oh well. So I'm down to only 7 extra bags in the freezer, but hey, we are still doing good for now. 4 months and still only breastmilk. Hope to keep it up!

Oh. My stomach dropped. I've done that too and cried. Jason was like, "Can't you just make some more?" *sigh* Men. No. It doesn't work like that. You DO have to work hard for it. You're right.

:( Sorry.

I can't believe she's still only on breastmilk. You've been back to work for a long time too. Good for you. That's a lot of hard work!

I did that too! So frustrating...

Good job on breastfeeding for this long. It gets easier and easier as they get older and know what to do. I miss it so much!
