My son gets bottles at the sitter (as I work one day per week) so I do pump for that. Mostly, he just goes where I go other than that day
That said - I love my baby dearly, but it is nice to have at least a small frozen pumped stash in case you need a break. For example, I wanted to go fabric shopping on Black Friday - my husband kept my son for a few hours so I could shop quickly and unencumbered. Also, my MIL just kept my son for about 2.5 hours last Sunday so my husband and I could go to a concert nearby. It was nice to know I would be able to sit and enjoy the show.
Those are about the only two times I have left him other than work - but they were much appreciated breaks!!!
Good luck mama-to-be!
