it's time consuming and I have to stop what I'm doing every 3 hours to pump...

for me it was the walk to my pumping office... I always felt bad that I was leaving my desk, like I was slacking on my work, even though I always got it all done

the time commitment. While I enjoyed surfing the net, reading, watching TV . . . sometimes I felt like I was being forced to take "me" time when I was super busy! That got a lot better though when I didn't need to pump as many times per day

How time consuming it is, and also the fact that I feel like my co-workers might get annoyed that I have to leave the desk 3x a day.

The time committment. I feel like it's much harder to be productive at work when I'm going down to pump three times a day.

for me it was the cleaning every night. I loathed washing bottles at the end of each day. I would so often fall asleep BF'ing Ollie at bedtime and then have to drag myself out of bed to wash pump parts.

Everyone in the offices seems to know I pump - and know where I pump - but people keep deciding that the office I use - is a good place for meetings/lunch... as a matter of fact - there is a meeting right now, and it better be someplace else. I pump in 15 min!

Yes, I agree!

Also, I feel like a cow when I'm all hooked up to the pump!!
