Pumping sucks and not just literally. It can hurt, it takes so much time, and often you get way less milk than if you just nursed the baby in the first place. I'm always in awe of friends who exclusively pump or go back to work and keep pumping through that entire first year. I don't think I'd make it. Just pumping to get my supply up and prepare for the occasional evening out makes me irritable.
