    I asked a question about a week ago about pumping at work to a leader. Where do I find my response? I cant get back to the place where i sent the message. I know this must seem silly.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know that leaders are generally busy people with multiple commitments. So it's possible your answer is lost in the shuffle? You might get a faster answer if you post a question here on the forum. It's not guaranteed to be an answer from a LLL leader, but we do have some knowledgeable mamas here and I think crowdsourcing might help.

    I don't even know how to get to where my question is to see if someone answered! I am having a terrible time pumping at work. I'm a waitress, both my bosses are men. They never let me pump in a timely manner and I have to go to my car. It is degrading and I have already gotten a plugged mammary gland. I brought in a dr note saying I have to go every 3-4 hours. I even called the district manager. All my attempts to make sure my baby has a bottle for my next night at work because I am exclusively breastfeeding. Is anyine else struggling this way?

    I think this is a very common problem for women in certain professions, especially the service and helping professions. Your job is all about satisfying someone else's needs, and that leaves you with little time for your own.

    I think the best way to deal with this is to first think about your workplace. How many people does your work employ? If it's more than 50 and you're in the US, you may be legally entitled to pump breaks and a clean, private place to pump. Then, think about your schedule- is there any way to change things so that pumping isn't such a problem for you? Finally, talk to your employers and try to make it positive- explain your situation in as calm and clear a way as possible, and propose some solutions to your problem that would improve the workplace for all pumping moms.

    Are you having trouble covering your baby's bottle needs?
