I am a November 2019 mummy. I have went back to work last month. I am an exclusive pumping mother. I am pumping 5 times per day. I pump 2 times at work. I am wondering how many times other mummies pump at work.

I was an exclusive pumping mom too.... For over 2 years... I pumped 6 times a day.... about 3.5 - 4 hrs... cos my breasts get engorged easily. I pumped 3 times @ work n has 2 adjust my timing when I have meetings.

Well done mummy for being an exclusive pumping mom for so long. I felt very tired to pump especially waking up in the middle of the night and waking up half an hour earlier in the morning to pump. Will be more difficult when I have a hectic schedule at work. I hope I can continue to pump until baby reaches 1 year old.

it's wasn't easy.... I had 2 go back to work after 2 month of ML, n my boss was quite supportive.

but as I have mentioned earlier, d meetings I attended were external meetings n sometimes it can get lengthy....

Shortly after a mth of returning 2 work.... I almost gave up as my engorgement gets more frequent due 2 lengthy meetings. But my DD had 2 undergo an emergency surgery n PD told me dat bm is best 4 her... She got a lactation consultant 2 help wif my engorgement issue... in d end I was told dat as long as I pumped every 4 hrs, I shld b fine.... n if I choose 2 stop, I will just need 2 slowly extend d timing 2 wean off...

After my gal turns 2... DH told me I shld stop pumping... we sort of regretted as DD was still drinking milk n we felt d pinch @ how much she drinks... even wif solid food, her milk intake did not reduce n we kept asking PD when DD can stop drinking milk. N PD will always tell us off cos "it's gd she is drinking milk... y do u wanna stop her fr drinking milk?"

My gal is 7 now, n she still drinks milk b4 n after she wakes up.

I can tell u it's not ez, esp when we r FTWM, but d "accomplishment" u achieved here...

Nov 2019 mummy here also. I pump at 730am (before work, upon reaching office), 930 or latest 1030am, 1230 latest 130pm, 330pm latest 430pm. Basically any opportunity I get I would pump, cos don’t know when I can next pump
