I'm preparing for when I have to return to work, and am just wondering if there are any moms who have success stories about pumping at work?
The moms I have seen return to the workplace have all given up after a month or two of pumping on the job. Ultimately they feel like they are away from their desk too much; they are afraid other coworkers resent them, etc.
Is anyone out there doing this well, and if so, what are some of your tricks? How do you get things done quickly? What pumps are you using? What is your nursing schedule like? Are you taking shorter lunches/coming in early or anything to offset the time you spend away from your desk?
I really want to be able to nurse for at least 6 months after I return to work, but I have yet to meet someone who has done so successfully. Can you help?
Also, I was curious about day care - do they normally let you provide bottles of breastmilk for your baby to have throughout the day?
