Schedule my time for pumping/returning to work
How should I schedule my time as I will be resuming work in one week? I wish to continue breast feed my baby.?
I won't be able to pump at work. Neither during breaks as there is no proper place to do so - I am planning to pump when I return from work. But will that be enough for the baby during the day?? I am confused. How should I proceed? Any ideas and advice would be great, it's URGENT

Baby wont take bottle while mom is at work
Thank you for this wonderful website. I am watching our 4-month-old granddaughter at our house while her mother (our daughter)returns to her teaching job.
Last week was the first week apart for them. When I tried giving her a bottle of her mother's milk (medela bottle & pump brand) she put it in her mouth then cried and turned her head. During the summer she did successfully take a bottle 3 or 4 times.
We continued to try each day. After a few days, I bought a Playtex drop in the bottle using the 3-6 mo. Nipple. Still no luck. She normally nurses 7am,10am,1pm, and 4pm, etc..
For a week she has not eaten for the 10 am and 1 pm feedings. Should we continue trying? Or should we introduce a baby cup?
Should we try feeding her formula with one of the above bottles? My daughter has worked hard pumping and storing her breast milk and wants to continue if possible. Thank you for your time and recommendations.

Back at work
If one is breastfeeding and giving formula, is the baby safe from disease?
I am a young mother, aged 23, just had a bouncing baby girl, now I am back to work and am giving her formula while lm at work. She is no longer pooing every day, and her poo is horrible in smell plus its dark in color. Is it normal?
Issues with my chain of command and pumping at work
by PFC glassburner
OK, so I'm active duty in the army and a correctional officer for the military.
I'm just a pfc, so I don't carry much authority. I told my NCO before I had my son that I will be breastfeeding so I need a place to pump at when I get off of leave.
I was told that I would have to pump in my car and that they are not sure they can accommodate giving me so many breaks to pump as they have to send a replacement guard while I'm gone.
How do I talk to him to get him to understand that my car is very public as min prisoners do yard work near the parking lot and that if I don't pump every 2 hours for 20 minutes, my supply will drop? Can anyone help???
