And yes, I have a toooon of milk in the freezer. I wish it would last longer than 3 months.


You can keep breast milk in the freezer up to (some sources even say more than) a year!

And kuddos to you pumping moms! That is awesome dedication!

i went to a bfing class while i was pregnant and the LC that ran it was saying the same thing. that there was some research now saying breastmilk still had alot of the goodness in it even after being frozen for up to and over a year.

the official literature they handed out says something totally different but it sounds like there is research supporting it.

Good news. There is a lock on the file room normal door, and the cubbyhole door is currently blocked by a giant filing cabinet that hasn't been picked up by facilities yet. Hopefully that lasts until the student staff changes in September.

Awesome! I really feel that I wouldn't be able to relax enough for a good letdown if I thought someone was going to pop in on me at any second!

There's going to a Breast Pump hackathon at MIT, which is really cool.

Quote:
MIT says that maternal and neonatal health is a space that “lags behind others” in innovation, and they want to change that. Plus, breast pumping flat-out sucks. As MIT points out on its website:

"The motor is loud. There are too many parts. They are hard to clean. You can’t lay down and pump. There is no good space to pump. It’s hard to keep track of what you pump. Your colleagues think pumping is weird. People are skeeved out by breastmilk. People are embarrassed by breasts."
