    Exactly. Even if BFing is not enjoyable, the time saved in the long run makes it so worth it.

    There are many working and pumping moms who go on to work FT and nurse too. Look at some of their threads about making it work.

    I pumped at work for my first child. And there is no way I ever wanted to come home from work and pump some more, ever. Or wash more bottles or more pump parts than I had to. Going back to work is hard enough as it is without adding EP to the mix.

    DS born 8/2011 nursing like a champ

    Sorry for the short responses...always, always, always NAK or holding a baby
