Then I would pump like I suggested. They have to accomodate you and a note taker is easy to find. I used to do it and it was so simple.

Re: How should I go about this?

kimmie has a great idea. Since breastfeeding isn't a disability, if the Disability Resource Center doesn't help you can check with the Dean of Students office as well - that office is not the same as your college dean's office. They would typically handle non academic student issues like conduct and stuff, but this may fall under their realm. But really, if it's only 2 days a week for a total of 4 hours away, not 4 hours worth of classes, you should be ok I would think. You can easily make up for it on the other 5 days you're home. Just try not to stress (I know, easier said than done).

Re: How should I go about this?

When I was going to school four hours a day when my son was breast feeding the hand pump was fine. It just took a little bit longer to pump than when I used an electric pump.

this ^ its only 4 hrs 2 days a week and by that time your supply will be established. just nurse before and right after and you can send a bottle just in case baby wants milk halfway through you being gone.

Re: How should I go about this?

I went back to work for 5hr shifts 4 days a week when my son was around 9mos and it never affected my supply. I was def full and ready to nurse by the time I got off! and he was happy too bc he wouldnt take a bottle. neither of mine would take bottles. he would do solids and a sippy of water with my mom while I was gone.

Good question! I was wondering about school and pumping too as I will be going back part time in the fall. I didn't realize they had to accommodate pumping.

Neither did I until the ladies here informed me. I am really excited about school now that I know I have some options for my LO .
