Re: brainstorm with me
for you and your husband!! I hope this lady realizes how lucky she is.
I pumped as often as 4 times per day in the very beginning, but that didn't last long. Within a few weeks I'd settled into 3x per day and down to 2x per day by about 7 months. Each one was about 20 minutes
It isn't unreasonable to request her to use her break times to pump, but if there is work she can do while pumping (reading or something like that) I wouldn't ask her to make that up. I was lucky to be given one 'free' 30 minute pumping session per day and it was so nice because it meant I didn't have to make up 30 minutes at the end of the day (it meant I could get back to baby sooner). I used my lunch to pump, but was given permission to eat my lunch at my desk while working so that I didn't have to try to eat and pump at the same time.
I'd also recommend your husband look at the laws for your state to make sure he is complying.
