Hi Everyone. I'm really interested to hear from some veteran working moms about their experiences pumping after returning to work. I've talked to several friends and family members about their breast feeding experiences and most of them have told me that they didn't last very long after going back to work. How long did you continue to pump after returning to work? What was your pumping schedule like? Any tips or tricks for the logistics, or to stay motivated?
If it matters, I plan on taking 8 weeks of maternity leave before returning to my full time job. I work a normal 8-5, with occasional overtime. I do have a private office with a locking door, so that will help a lot I think. It is a communal fridge though. Is it weird to store breast milk in the communal fridge? LOL
