My son is ebf and i work fulltime. I have no where to pump at work so i wait until i get home and finally pump after working 8 hours. My supply is getting low and I'd rather quit my job than stop bf my son.

I just don't know what to do anymore

i am pretty sure while you are working and bf your work place needs to provide a place for you to pump

I'm not a bf and I haven't had an infant in 11 years but I thought there were laws saying your employer has to provide time and a place for pumping.

I wouldn't quit my job unless I could afford it.  Formula feeding is not the end of the world

Look up your laws for BF in the workplace. I think it's something along the lines of if there's more than 20 employees, they have to provide a space? I'm not really sure.

So you don't even have a bathroom? I don't believe that...you can't even go sit in your car during breaks?

That's why you want to quit your job, so you can continue to breastfeed??!! Good Lord! I love this site!

Your employee need to find you a clean, appropriate place to pump & adequate break time.

ETA: it can be done, if your goal is to not need formula. I went back to work fairly quickly with my youngest two. I developed a love/hate relationship with my pump.

Your employer has to give you a place to pump, even if it's just a clean bathroom.

Could you afford to work part time?

That would allow more time with your son (which is what this is really about, I think.)
