So i left bryan asleep at my sil house he hasnt eaten since 1140 so i got to work at 2 and decided to pump. I told the head cashier to cover me real quick while i pump. She looked at me and asked if bryan is breastfeeding i told her yes he is and she asked how do i do it. I told her i leave milk for him and at work i pump every 2 hours. I usually pump in the bathroom which i dont mind when i hear a knock on the door and it was the head cashier wanted to see me pump(since she heard i could usually pump 4 to 6 oz in one session she had trouble pumping milk with one of her kids apparently) so i showed her and she watched in amazement. She told me she felt bad she couldnt pump alot(1 oz) and i told her well i learn that the normal is .5 to 2 oz from both breasts and that a pump doesnt measure the amount milk a mother has. She asked me lots of things and looked surprised like she never heard of it. Shes 37 with 4 kids then she was impressed and congrats me on still breastfeeding. :) felt good

thats awesome! I wish I could pump that much.. I usually get 1oz total from both during the day but when I pump after I get back from school (about 3-4 hours) I get like 3 oz total.

wow... I wouldn't pump in front of some, I have just done it in front of my mom and SO.

Anyway, last month or so, a woman of other department came back from maternity leave, I don't know her because we don't work together just in the same facility, but I congrated her and let her know about the new "Nursing/pumping Area" and she just told me "good for you, thank you" so I felt so bad she didn't even care. My co-worker is pregnant with twins, we have been talking about breastfeeding but I haven't ask her what are her plans with her babies, I wouldn't like her telling me she doesn't care.
