Day Twenty Nine and Day Thirty

6:25 am

Day 29 - hopes, dreams, and plans for the next 365 days

I hope Ernest will get the hang of breastfeeding, and if he can't that I can pump for him for as long as possible,and stop feeling like a failure.

I dream of not much these days, and I don't really make plans more than a few days ahead.

Day 30 - a dream for the future

I dream of a long contented future with what remains of my family, and hopefully one day lots of grand children too.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. Jeanette you're not a failure, quite the opposite, look how chunky Ernest is getting on your milk alone. He's had the physical barriers to BF sorted thanks to your tenaciousness. Keeping your supply up is a real achievement. Yay for you.

  2. I don't plan very far ahead either so this is a challenge for me too.

    But those are my sort of dreams too.

  3. You are SO SO SO not a failure. You're amazing. Completly. Even when Tobias was newborn I could only pump first thing in the morning. The rest of the time I would just get a trickle. So for you to sustain and turn little Ernest in to squishy Ernest is awesome. Completly.

  4. I'll add to the chorus - not a failure. Not in the least. Your boy is lucky to have a mama working so hard for him.

    Also, your dream for the future sounds so very lovely.

  5. Definitely not a failure on any level. He is getting breastmilk and growing healthy and strong. You have done beautifully.


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
