I'm currently expecting my first, and the plan is to EBF. Since I'll be a SAHM for the foreseeable future I don't really want to use a pump. When I mentioned this to my mother and a few of friends I have been berated up one side and down the other about it. I'm not really concerned with them being naysayers, because who doesn't enjoy a good "I told you so" at the end of the day, but I am starting to question whether I will actually HAVE to pump.
Some of the pros from my fiancé's perspective are being able to also feed LO, and I would be able to travel out of town for a trip my girlfriends desperately want me to go on (that I really don't want to but am kinda stuck in because I'm part of the bridal party...) But outside of that, I don't really want to pump, and don't see the necessity of it. Am I wrong for just wanting to be all natural with this? Is pumping really the be all end all for making EBF work?
