I am "on-call" next week for possible jury duty and am exclusively breastfeeding my 3 month old son. I must call each evening to see if I have to report the next day. I am back to work, but am pumping 3x a day. There is no law in my state to excuse breastfeeding mothers. If I do have to go, I assume I won't be picked because I am breastfeeding and need 3, 15-20 minute breaks throughout the day. However, I had jury duty 3 years ago and was there 1/2 a day before it was decided I wasn't picked as a juror.
If I do have to go that first day and can't pump until lunch time or whenever, will that affect my supply at all? Pumping at work 3x a day gets me 8.5-10oz total which is just enough to keep up with my son (including some evening and weekend pumping). I do have a small freezer stash, but would hate to start having supply issues.
As I said I can't imagine them picking me after finding out I need to pump 3x a day, but would like to try and plan for this the best I can just in case. My fingers are crossed that there will be no cases next week and won't have to report at all!
