Re: Six-ish hour stretch without pumping
Hard to say whether that would be okay or not. 6 hours is a long stretch, and if you were doing it every day I would say that you would certainly need to pump at least once, and maybe twice since all you have is a manual pump. But if you're doing just 1 six hour stretch a week... Honestly, because your baby is still so little I would still pump. Get your co-worker a bouquet of flowers or a box of doughnuts and a thank-you note every once in a while, and don't feel guilty about doing what it takes to provide your baby with the best.
