Re: NYTimes article on breastfeeding READ IT and comment!

If there's a will, there's a way. I went back to work when ds was 2 months old and he has not had a sip of formula. I'm one of those low income mothers and knew iIwould need to go back to work asap, but I didn't want to do the formula thing. I clean houses, so a pumping room isn't an option, so I pump in my car. I pumped in my car in the 15 degree weather of February, and I've pumped in the 90+ degree weather of August (that did a job on my let down). I hate, hate, hate that pump, but I will use it as long as ds is getting most of his nutrition from breastmilk.

We should all move to Japan! lol
