Re: pump and dump?

SOmetimes people think they need to pump and dump to get the milk out of their system faster. It is in your blood, and milk is made from your blood, so you just have to wait it out, pumping isn't going to get it out any faster.

And yes, easiest thing to remember, if you can drive, you can nurse your baby.
