I planned on it, but got pregnant again at when our son was 6 mos, and he didn't like the taste of my pregnant milk, so he weaned himself. I think my production cut down as well from the pregnancy, because even when I tried pumping it didn't stick.
I was scared of the pump at first, honestly, lol:) I always just fed him under a little blanket when we went anywhere, or if it was hot I went into another room for privacy. I'm not a boob flasher :) I started pumping every night in the middle of the night to build up a "just in case" supply, and that was when I made the most milk, so I felt the most comfortable pumping then and not worrying my son would want a feeding and I wouldn't have any for him because I pumped. It was always more comfortable to me to just feed him without having to store milk, heat it, and try to get him to eat whatever amount. But whatever makes you comfortable is what is right for you :) Good luck!! :)
