started an EP blog! Pumping Moms

Would love more EPing moms to contribute your stories - can be a single post, or a regular contributor. We hope for this to become a resource of stories, tips, and other info from moms who have lived through it. The good and the bad are welcome.


email pumpingmoms@gmail.com (with your preferred screen name to reference for you and your kiddo or just PM me/type it out right here on the forum and include your personal blog if you'd like us to link back.

If you aren't sure what to write, here is a general guideline you can pick and choose from:
Why you pump (your story)
How long you have been EPing
What equipment you use
Your pump schedule
Tips for fellow pumpers
Do you love or hate your pump? Share a review.

And definitely check the blog for examples Moms' stories and whatnot. Thanks for your help! Hopefully this blog can be useful to moms everywhere!

either you need to allow PM's or you may need to have more posts before it's enabled .... so you might want to look into that.

It'd be nice to hear your story and why you decided to set this up.

my story is on the blog, but it won't let me use links. I tried to look up how to enable PMs too, and for the life of me I can't figure it out.

Basically I was a mom who wished there was more information and support out there for EPing, and decided to try and make a difference.

I'm pretty sure you probably need to have more posts before some things like PMs and posting links is allowed, to protect from spammers.

I believe it's 10 posts before you can use PM's, Pics, links etc...

thanks for the links .... glad you got it to work. i'm sorry because I can't contribute to your blog, i only ever pumped at work, but I want to wish you all the best. I found Rachel's story similar to my own ... after BF'ing for 5 days ok my milk came in and I had trouble getting my first to latch. We syringe fed for about 2 days but luckily (IMO at least) I was able to get him back on the breast.

Good Luck!
