  • All of them do. You just need to take your breaks and pump while at work. Some moms go home (or to daycare) and feed on their lunches and pump in between time.

  • My job supports me. I have successfully pumped for over a month now, since returning from maternity leave.

  • Oh god...not the "troll".

    My last job was extremely supportive. I worked in mental health and I was free to pump anytime there was down time. I work as a substitute teacher now and I pretty much have one shot during my lunch to pump and even then it is in a janitor's closet sitting on the floor. It sucks.
