I realized something this morning...

as I was pumping and listening to the storm roll in...

*if lightening stikes the house while I am pumping, that could get painful...

* if the power goes out for an extended period of time, Cole and I are up the fecal tributary without a means of transportation. I have mastisis (and another sore spot in my breast, go figure!) and while my hand pump is good, it is dying. Slowly. I'm horrible at hand expressing, have no formula on hand and just enough milk for maybe a day.

Breasfeeding is easy. Formula feeding is easy. Pumping and feeding EBM is not easy.
