Getting up every night at 3am

to pump milk used to sound like a horrific nightmare. How could I ever get used to getting up in the middle of the night, every night and stay awake for 15 minutes??? Well I've been doing it since Charlotte was born and now I actually enjoy it. It's the only 15 minutes of the entire 24 hour period that's totally mine to surf the internet, get caught up on blogs, write mine, etc. No one is awake but the dog. He shuffles over to our bedroom door every night in hopes that his favorite person, my husband, will also get up and join us.

Many times I find myself hanging out past the 15 minutes necessary to pump. It's my time and I relish it!

Actually, it sounds nice. Is this a nursing that Charlotte has always slept through? Lucky girl (you)! I will eventually get this with my 3rd and with 1st and 2nd I did too. I waited till morning to pump and stored that milk away. By the time each kid was done nursing, I had approx 100 bags of 6 oz of milk each. This was nice becasue by the time 2nd was 11 months, I only had to nurse her morning and night and the rest of her milk came from the freezer. So nice for me!
