Re: Pumping Predicament
I've read and heard this too (although I just can't get myself up to do it.) I was told by an LLL leader to also try pumping 5 minutes after LO feeds in the am.

Pumping at work is a pain in the a--. I have nowhere to go that's clean and very little time to do it. So I can commiserate with you. I am lucky that a full day's work is only 5 1/2 - 6 hours for me so I only pump 2 Xs.
