It was so hard for me when I went back. I am a nurse and worked for a drs office at the time. I was the only one in the office since the secretary got fired. So the communication was that they would find someone to fill in for me a couple times a day so I could pump. They did at first, but after a week or so it slowed down to nothing and I dried up. Terrible because I wanted to breast feed a lot longer.

I am really lucky. I work for a small company and we have an extra office that I go in and pump. I put a sign on the door knob saying "be out in 5 minutes" lol I cant image though being at a sales job such as a supermarket or something similar though. It must be hard. If I had to though I would do it in my car, or the restroom with batteries in the pump.

I know it really does suck no pun intended. As long as I know that my son is in good hands it makes it easier for me to go to work everyday. I was so dedicated to my job before I had him now i feel like I could just walk out at any time. On the other hand it is some of the only adult time I get now.
