Oh Jesus they aren't kidding

Sage* really can lower your milk supply.
Like, really.
I went a whole six hours without pumping, and I didn't leak at all.
A little scary.

I bought the Spice Island Sage, and mixed a teaspoon into my pasta sauce last night.

I found your blog through cecily. I plan to exclusively pump myself. I'm so glad you decided to write this blog, since I also have found next to no information on just pumping. My little girl is due on August 8th and the reason for me deciding on just pumping is because I plan to work in just a month after giving birth and I find it will probably be easier to pump and still take advantage of the bottle convenience.

I have a guestion though. Did you start pumping right after giving birth or did you breastfeed and then pump? I'd like to pump right after, but find that everyone keeps pushing for me to go to the breast first and then pump. Something about that creeps me out. I feel like saying "my boobs, not yours, mine." like a four year old with her favorite toy.

P.S. My new blog is http://blog.myspace.com/myrita. Give me a read when you have some time :)

Hi Myrita!
I'll answer that question in a whole other post, I think--it's a good one.
But definitely do what is best for YOU, whatever that may be.
I'll totally visit your blog!
