Goodness me, how could I possibly have sent an apologetic booby letter without an honorary mention to the excruciation that is the process of expressing milk. The manual and electric pumps that, after a short while of constant pumping, form your nipples into something akin to cow udders the length of your baby finger. The hands only manual expression that should be considered a form of torture. The sad and disheartening final product after said painful extraction of milk, just one ounce of liquid gold. Two red and throbbing breast, 15-20 minutes of anguish for 1 measly ounce................sob.
Again my boobies, I am so very very sorry!
