    steviej,

    great post......I do remember with my 4th baby...I started back to work part time and he was exclusively breastfed....he did not want to take a bottle and would wait all day till I got home to nurse. Bless his heart....this is a common occurrence with breastfed babies....they will wait for mum to return home to nurse rather than take a bottle.
    I would leave pumped milk, and he would refuse.
    Ideally it would of been great if I could of left work and was able to nurse him during the day. But that was not an option.
    I did work part time and that helped ease the separation.

    Looking forward to hearing other mums stories....
    blessings

    Thank you for sharing your story! My coworker had the same issue except she did go to the daycare and pump because her son would not take a bottle. I have stopped pumping. I just could not produe enough milk. I wanted to breast feed but I guess its not meant for all of us. Thank you for your story!
