Re: "Success" Stories?
Not in retail, but I pumped for nearly 10 months after I went back to work with my first. I was a surgery resident at the time, working >12 hours a day, doing operations with irregular pumping schedule and not always having a ton of time. It is hard work, but very worth it. I won't lie, by the end I was very sick of it, but I'm also proud of the hard work it took. I would check in to company policy; you may need to speak up and ask, but if it's in the manual you are in the right when it comes to HR. Best of luck!
