I'm expecting my first baby in June. I am clueless as any new mom, I planned on breastfeeding but I guess I didn't realize I would have to use a breast pump as often to keep the milk supply up. The problem is after I go back to work..I work 12hours shifts and I am a police officer...both do not make it very easy to accomidate pumping in that schedule!
Does anyone else have a busy job field like mine and were you able to fit in time to pump? Or should I just do formula to skip all the hassle?
Also, I will be off for 6 weeks, if I chose not to breastfeed, is it useless to breasfeed the 6weeks I have off?
