This is what my brother asked me.. becasue his girlfriend who is pregnant with their first child has said this.
Now I never breastfed (with my first my milk never came in, and with my second he went home a week before I did, and then we just couldnt get the hang of it when I finally got home ) ...and I also never worked while my children were little....but I am certain that there are many many women who are able to hold down their job and breastfeed ( or pump ) ...
I tried to be nice and explain to my brother that alot of woman do still go to work and breastfeed... and he goes on to tell me she has went to several breastfeeding classes and she knows the exact times ( she actually gave times, like 11am, 2:15 pm) ... and she said there is NO WAY their baby can be breastfed if she has to continue to work.
Sorry to say that this isnt the worst thing she has said either... It is obvious she doesnt want to work when the baby comes, and i cant say i blame her, because I didnt either... but she has such a bad shopping habit, SHE HAS TO . \
She has also told us that her boss said she has to come back to work 2 days after she has the baby, when my mom told her that her boss cant do that, she said well she said it and if she doesnt she will be fired... well we know her boss ( she is a friend of our grandma) and my grandma was trying to stick up for her but the boss said " no I told her after the 6 weeks are up she only has to come in for an hour or two and can bring the baby with her... I never said anything about 2 days" .. she also has her own private office so I think it would be super easy to breastfed there...
But I am sure we will hear many more things like this anyways... afterall this is the same girl who told my brother he is not a good father because he wont marry her yet and her daughter has to be born to a mother who is on government insurance .... yep.
