Breastfeeding | Storing Breast Milk, Returning to Work and Weaning

Breastfeeding is one of the greatest experiences for me during early motherhood. I breastfed my eldest until she was almost 18 months and my little one year old until he was 8 months. Breast milk has been such a wonderful source of nutrients and healing for my babies. My experience breastfeeding my son was a bit more challenging. Nonetheless both experiences were beautiful and exhausting, but I loved every moment of watching them nurse.

I can say that I was a little obsessed with pumping. I purchased a hand pump from Amazon and a double electric pump from my insurance company.  I’d pump on a regular schedule if my little fatso wasn’t eating and if I wasn’t sleeping.

Pregnancy & Multiple Sclerosis: Pages In A Mother’s Journal


Pregnancy & Living w/ Multiple Sclerosis 

Excerpt from my journal 5/30/2014

During my pregnancy with my son I kept an online journal at another blog to document my symptoms and my disease progression throughout the pregnancy. During the time I was not on any multiple sclerosis disease modifying medication. Here is one of my journal entries.

Multiple Sclerosis and the unknown are enough to drive the most balanced mother in the world nuts. Imagine being pregnant and dealing with an illness that mocks sleep and drags your body through a fatigue hell. I often find myself feeling guilty for not wanting to do anything other than rest.
