What did you say to them? And was it difficult?

Yes, if they are under 1 and breastfeeding you will get out of it.

On the form they send it should have a space for you to say why you can't. Just state that you have an infant you are breastfeeding and are the sole caregiver. They didn't give me a hard time.
