    "[It] is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life. It's so time-consuming and you really don't have your own life ... not that having a child you have your own life anyway. I haven't even taken a shower today. But the feeding and the pumping is very time consuming. It's worth the sacrifice and I love it and I love the time with her and I know it's healthy and I should be on the cover of Juggs magazine. It's rewarding, but it's definitely challenging."
