I found this book to be both inspirational and reassuring. Geared towards mothers who are returning to work, really I'd recommend it for anybody who has to use a breast pump for any reason.

I can't talk highly enough of this book- what a wonderful source for any breastfeeding mom who also works. I will be purchasing this book for any friends/family who is considering breastfeeding upon returning to work. I couldn't think of anything more helpful to them. Makes me want to say "thank you" to all the women who made this book possible- what an uplifting read!

I truly enjoyed this book and am glad I read it before returning to work. It is an entertaining and easy read that helps a nursing mother know she is not alone no matter what happens in the pumping/nursing process. I strongly recommend.

I am MaMa hear me Mooo! You will absolutely love this book I know I did. I cried, laughed and sometimes just set in the little shower room on a folding chair plugged in (pumping) and reading. Throughout my almost year and a half Moo-cow career I would feel myself getting weak at heart (thinking about weaning) and I'd turn back to the pages and find a funny or uplifting memo/entry and keep on pumping. No matter how alone I was, (and I was alone) I always felt I had friends when I read this book. Who were experiencing the same things I was and was going to experience. I highly recommend this book to any new mom who want to give breast feeding a chance.

I was a first time Mom - breastfeeding and had to go back to work after maternity leave. My job is not conducive to the demands of breastfeeding 'much less taking a lunch break' so I was so worried about how I could make it work. After reading this book, I felt like I was not alone and it gave me the confidence I needed to do what was best for me and my son. I did it and it wasn't as hard as I imagined it would be - this book really helped me deal with all the emotions and actual planning involved in storing milk ahead of time and preparing my workspace for pumping.

If you're a Mom who's trying to breastfeed and planning to go back (or already back) to work, this is a must-read. All of the issues they discuss were pertinent to me, and this book was a quick, informative, and enjoyable read. Highly recommended to any new Mom that's trying to blend work and parenting an infant.
