Rest In Peace

After 5 years of use and surving 3--almost 4 children, my breast pump has finally laid down to rest. I actually think it was more user error then machine error...

I think some milk got into the actual motor. My one breast if a lot more forceful then the other. I was pumping at work the other night and it was actually foaming in shield (it always does, but this time it was extra frothy). I noticed it backed up a little bit in the tubing--It made it inside the pump before I realized it. SO, I am gonna take it apart and see if I can maybe clean it out as a last effort. I really don't want to have to buy a new one. They are expensive--and well with the holidays coming up... BUT, I need one so we have to try to work something out. I am going to see if I can rent one...or maybe find a nice used one. Or maybe even see if my insurance will cover the rental. We will see...fingers crossed. If not, I will always have my hand pump--it will just take a little longer.

It will be missed.
