Do you mean bf and pump at the same time? I set a pumping schedule and stick to it as much as possible if the baby gets hungry during that time then baby has priority.

I am a firm believer that a baby can never be too attached to mom. You are laying the foundation for trust and your mother-child bond. Nursing is always going to be preferable to a bottle, always more efficient than any pump on the market, and the lists of benefits go on and on. I remember how exhausting it was nursing my boys. It was literally 24/7 for 4 years total between all three boys. Looking back, it was probably one of the best parenting decisions made thus far. Believe it or not, I miss that time spent one on one with each of my boys. Don't be in such a hurry to break away from them. They grow way too fast!!

Well mostly when they go with someone else and while we are out I give a bottle.
