Which would you do? I got offered a job at a daycare so I could nurse my daughter when she gets hungry but she never acts like she's full, lol. What should I do?

How old is baby?

No way would I choose to pump and feed if I didn't have to. Just me though.

I would feed her from the breast. Why are you pumping at 230am instead of nursing?

I wouldn't choose to pump either.

I'd nurse. Why are you pumping in the middle of the night instead of sleeping?

It's always best directly from the breast. She is also probably in the middle of a growth spurt; letting her nurse as much as she wants will bring your supply up faster than any pump can. Wear her in a wrap or carrier. If you do take the job, she only needs 1-1.25 ounces for every hour she has to be away from you.

Me, either! I'd pump and bottle feed before choosing formula but I despise pumping and would avoid it unless necessary.

I pumped for the first two weeks because of lip and tongue ties. We are exclusively breast now at two months. Straight from the tap is infinitely easier.
