I want to use this method with my 9 month old Was your experience good bad? I also read that a child typically self weans around 2-4 how did this affect preschool if any moms are at that stage?

yeah but they were trying to force me to take 5-10 minutes every hour. i was like, uh.. no. #1 pumping that often would make me over produce and my boobs would be engorged and in pain, and #2 it freakin took me at least 5 minutes to get the milk to come out in the first place!

from the get-go, i just took a break every three hours and pumped for 20 minutes even though they tried to tell me i couldnt but it was still a hassle. i was always trying to hurry up so i didnt get yelled at that day, and i'd have to sneak away when nobody was looking so they didnt stop me... yeah it was horrible. i ended up quitting after a few months.

i probably would have been fine but my employers HR department was being such a douche about it that it made it so hard.
