UUUUGGGGHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This will be the end of me. No really, it's causing me physical pain. Do you think I can sue lansinoh for ruining my life. Is there a lawyer out there that will work pro bono? Let's take on the company that is dedicated to breastfeeding mothers! I'm walking a thin line folks and this just might push me over the edge.

Christy said...

I hear ya, girl. Do you remember my Liquid Gold story at my mom's house with the twins. It was my undoing and I freaked out at everyone. Girl, you might need to lose it so then you can start anew. A good freakout will do wonders for your psyche. You KNOW we all do it too. Might as well join the Crazy Club with all of us if you haven't already.

I'm sorry Ruth....hang in there. If you need something...I'm here for you!

Katie Schultz said...

We need to get them to send you a life time supply of stuff to make up for it.

Heather said...

Well, that totally sucks! You go through all the work to pump the liquid gold in there, and the dang bag breaks?! I can feel your pain, and frustration. Now what you need to do is go out and get a new set of bags and throw those other one's out! That way, if there are any other flimsy bags in that package, you won't have to deal with them. And I like Christy's suggestion... just let it out. Go a little crazy with the rest of us. It really does help. And if you've already tried that route.... do it some more.

when i was a breast-pumping new mom i remember thinking about the phrase "No use crying over spilled milk." It took on a whole new meaning. I remember thinking, "I have EVERY RIGHT to cry over this spilled milk!" All the time and pain it takes to squeeze out of your sore body, only getting BARELY enough to sustain your child, then watching drip across the counter top, useless. I almost lost it every time and I wasn't even dealing with the rest of what you are. Hang in there.

Ruth my name is Shelley Freckleton and my husband, Jeramy, is Justin Lyon's cousin. We have been watching your blog since Amelia posted the link to it from her blog. What an incredible job you are doing on documenting such a difficult story. Words can't even express how I admire your strength. I can't begin to imagine what you are going through. My brother, Steven Behling, is just finishing up his residency at CHOC in clinical psychology. If you ever run into him, give him a big hug for me. He is amazing and I know would love to meet someone like you. He will be there till the end of August. Hang in there! I too have had a Lansinoh bag leak--grr!

That is the saddest picture...so sorry for your pain

Auntie Ann said...

OH MY! Nothing worse...I straight up pumped for 7 months an if one drop even spilt I was crying. Not good!

Stacia said...

Just found your blog & am catching up. BUT... I had to comment on this post because those bags made for MANY bad days for me. I switched to Medela but it was too late for several that were already frozen. I think we lost a total of 11, may they rest in peace.

Brit and Heath said...

I feel ya. My daughter is two months old and very sensitive to milk. I've been freezing and to be honest hoarding breast milk in hopes she will one day be able to handle it. Congrats! She's a doll!

Emily Mecham said...

Oh, that brings back memories! I started crying remembering all the times I would cry when that would happen to me when my sick baby was in the NICU. And now I'm crying for you and your spilt milk. So sorry! Hang in there - Davy is so beautiful!

Cando said...

As a mother of a baby boy born at 32 weeks, and being told by the NICU nurses I had to pump every TWO HOURS, I laughed out loud at this post. My husband Graduated from BYU law two years ago.... Maybe we could talk him into it and split the spoils? Just an idea.

Love your blog by the way, I just "stumbled" apon it!
