I found breastfeeding to be far easier then pumping.

I have 2 kids, plus a preemie - and I pumped for 5 1/2 months to keep my milk supply until my preemie could breastfeed and I would never, ever go back to pumping, it's so time consuming, a hands-free carrier and your good to go, it's so much easier to be be mobile then stuck to a pump all day and night.

If you pump, you need to pump every 2-3 hours for 15-20 minutes.

I pump cause my baby wouldn't latch. I pump 15 min every 3-4 hours and I pump about 6-7 out of each breast. Everyone just told me to be consistant and don't go too long without pumping.

You need to start pumping more often during the day. 4 and 2 are tough ages. But should be able to understand that mommy needs to do this for about 15 mins every so often. Have them play with toys, etc.

Just pumping will make it very hard to establish a good supply. I'm still nursing my 14 month old, and I have a 6 year old and 3 year old twins, so it's very possible and not that hard to breastfeed while having older children.

The more you do it the more you make.

I have 4 kids, 3 of them are 3 years apart, I am due in about 6 weeks with another one. So that will be 4 kids 4 years apart and I have been able to burse all the little ones. I am a stay at home mom, husband works 2 full-time jobs so he isn't able to help. I will be nursing this baby with a 4yo, 3yo and 18 month old running around. 

Only doing it once a day will NOT establish a milk supply. If you are truly set on pumping, you need to pump every few hours for at least 15-20 minutes. That way your supply will increase and you won't need any formula.

I work full time right now, and have always worked, and with my first, I was in school fully time, so again, it's possible.

You will have to pump every 3-4 hours to keep your supply up.
