I just read your response to Isobel's mom, and I wanted to send you an enormous virtual bear hug and congratulate you on being one heck of a dedicated mama. Pumping for 24 months is a huge job, and it sounds like you were on your own in terms of support. I'm just so impressed with your willingness to stick by what you felt was the best thing for your little one...

I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
ditto here!

Thanks. I recently had a Doc tell me he wouldn't expect his wife to pump that long for their own children. One of the hardes times in my life and this is going to sound funny was when we moved and DH made me throw away 50 or more pounds of BM that I had frozen. Granted DD wasn't using it ne more but it broke my heart to do that.

i think I would have cried my eyes out! I know that breast milk is gold!
Check with your
doctor first!
