Fwiw I also have a friend who was taught to be ashamed of her body and was blamed by her mom when a relative miles red her at eight years old. She couldn't bf. but she pumped for a year for each of her two kids. But I'm pretty sure she is the most awesome person for achieving that.
I have always considered pumping and feeding to be breastfeeding. True the milk took a detour before getting to baby but the milk is still breastmilk. Am I wrong on this?
