    Re: How often should I pump at work?

    Try relaxing and reading. If your husband can take the baby and you can watch tv or read a book or something that may help. If you are stressing about your milk supply you usually get less. At least...

  11. Re: Pumping Confusiong and Going Back to Work

    Don't worry too much about how much your pumping. The more you worry the less you are going to get. I've found that my milk supply can fluctuate wildly. You will have enough to feed your baby. I...

    Re: Sleep-deprived working mom needs to vent

    I know some mother's are against but does your baby sleep in a crib in another room or are you co-sleeping. For awhile after going to work I co-slept and it helped. Now we're trying to phase him into...
