Has anyone out there ever felt like their co-workers were holding their pumping schedule against them and the co-worker was trying to 'set them up' to make it look like your not doing your job? I don't know if that makes sense. But ever since I've come back to work and specially since I began going to feed DS at lunch, I've felt like a specific co-worker is trying to passively knock me down because of it. I'm not talking about my boss or anything. He is fine with it all. I get 15 min twice a day (which I prolly need a little bit more but I make it work). This is a lady who breastfed both kids till 6 months. We are truly co-workers neither is over the other so she has no direct way of doing anything to me. The only thing I can think of is that she wasn't very successful at pumping. She wasn't comfortable just finding a room (we work in a hospital all over and never know where we will be at a given time) or stopping what she was doing and going to her designated place to pump. We do have jobs where we can do that and not need immediate coverage. I on the other hand make no bone about it that I need to pump and my patients can wait a short 15 minutes for my baby to get what he needs.
Is she just pissed cuz I'm not ashamed of asking for the time or space? What can I do to protect myself from a negative stigma sticking with me or being applied to my ability to do my job? I just feel like she is trying to get me fired or something.
