How is the suction on the pump? If you have it up too high it can make your breasts very sore. You might try nursing instead of pumping before you leave, then pump every three hours MAX- four hours is a little long and will make you uncomfortable. I work thirty hours a week, pump every morning, even the days I don't work, and then pump every 2.5-3 hours after that. All places of employment are now required to give you properly spaced pumping breaks, and a location that is private and not a restroom, closet, etc. That was one of the minor parts of the healthcare reform bill, and was effective immediately. Check out http://www.usbreastfeeding.com/ for FAQ and a link to the text.Â I've been pumping for over a year now, so it is very possible.Â Check out the Breastfeeding Moms group- they can help with any issues with work/pumping.
