You can only do what you can do. Most would have thrown in the towel already. It's great that he was able to get mommy milk at all, especially throughout his intestinal trouble. I'm also happy to hear that he's doing well now.
LOVE having that freezer stash huh? I pumped for 10 months and got almost 2 more on the freezer supply (thank goodness for 3 freezers). Nursing for us just didn't work either. He got used to the bottle from the NICU and would get frustrated. Then I'd worry he didn't get enough and I'd be cranky. Pumping isn't fun, but it became our new normal for awhile. I hope you're able to reach your goal of 3 more months. I bet you will. Enjoy that little man and don't stress and what you can't control.
