I've been lurking on this site for the past 8 months. There is such good information here! My daughter is due in July and I have planned on exclusively pumping for her. I don't wish to breast feed for personal reasons. However, I was told by someone at my local health department that EPing for your baby is not possible as it would hurt your supply. Now, I've lurked on here enough to know that some mama's do EP only. This woman was not an LC by the way. I was asking her about renting a breast pump and she told me the health department wouldn't issue one until 2 weeks after birth. I only plan on taking 4 weeks off after I have my daughter for financial reasons.
So my question is, can I exclusively pump for my daughter starting at birth? Any recommendations would be great. Thank you!
