So seeing all the threads about pumping questions, has me asking a few of my own. I'm due at the end of October, which kind of the middle of a semester for me.(I'll have about 6 weeks left, before Christmas Vacation.) And I was wondering should I try to BF at all or EP? My plan right now is to spend 2 weeks out of class and then go back. I really can't miss anymore class than that. I'm hoping I get a chance to get a good freezer supply built up, but formula is always an option if needed. I do plan to pump when I go back to school. I really want to BF.
Well, I think its a very personal choice whether you try to BF at all or EP from the beginning. But one website I read did say that if you were going to EP, it would be best to get your first pumping session in within 6 hours of the baby's birth. I would just suggest doing research on it and deciding what's best for you and your situation.
