She passed!!

Today our Lil Eleanor passed her car seat challenge. She was such a cutie and slept basically for the entire hour and a half. She had no difficulty at all and another step forward was achieved.

Re: How long are your pumping sessions?

I pump on average between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how much flow is coming out. I pump both breasts at the same time.
