I am so lucky to be able to stay home with my lo and have the ability to breastfeed. I have gone 7 weeks without any end in sight to an oversupply. I don't see why it is so terrible to pump once in a while (I do once every other day - but stopped since babe has Thrush and I understand he can get it again from the milk). I do so because I want to have a small frozen stash for emergencies/ babysitting. Also my hubby loves to feed him once in a while.
On another note - Ive read some comments about how much a babe should be eating - I thought you couldnt fo wrong with feeding on demand and as much as they want.
Maybe Im missing the bigger picture here - can someone tell me why pumping seems to be so frowned upon with breastfeeding moms. It seems as bad as breastfeeding a toddler to other people.
