In my opinion, one of the hardest things about a new baby is pumping at work as a full-time working mom. It’s a huge commitment and can be an inconvenience at times. That being said, I always planned to nurse my kids so I never considered other options – it is what it is.
Not only is it a huge commitment, but it also brings a certain amount of stress and worry that I think only pumping moms understand. Am I producing enough? Will my baby have enough to eat tomorrow? Do I have enough saved up in the freezer? Constant. Worry.
