I'm due with my 2nd boy this August, and my son will be turning 3 the week before I'm due. I would like to breastfeed this baby at least for a few months, but I'm not sure if it's even going to be possible, at least not most of the time anyway. My son we believe has ADD, and he is very clingy with me and doesn't play by himself a lot. He basically follows me around the whole day, I can't even go to the toilet by myself or do anything. So, I'm worried about how during the day when my husband's at work, about how I am going to breastfeed. If it's a 5 minute feed, yes maybe possible, but there's no way I could sit and nurse for half an hour when I'm on my own. I know for sure when we're out, it will have to be a bottle, but at home I'd like to breast feed. Any tips? Anyone been in the same position? I'm thinking my options are expressing milk for during the day, and when my husband is home then I can breast feed. Just not looking forwards to trying to express that much milk for the next day!
