Just want to say...

You full-time working mommas who pump are my heroes! I had a training today and had to be away from DD for 10 hours. I'm still on maternity leave and when I go back I'm only doing 15 hours per week so I won't even need to pump at work. All I had to do was 3 times pumping today, and I just had a really hard time with it! I can't imagine having to do it 3 times a day, 5 days a week. Wow--I have a new appreciation for those who are committed to BFing while working!!!

Totally agree. I pump so sporadically, but I absolutely hate it. Kudos to those doing it full time!

TOTALLY agree! I had a bite and a milk blister in about a 4 week period and did a ton of pumping on that side in that time...it was MISERABLE. Turns out I absolutely hate pumping...
