I bought this book to aid me in returning to work after being out on maternity leave for 4 months. When I read the suggested schedule for a 4 month old, I was shocked. the schedule has you nursing or pumping a tremendous number of times including 3 times during the night and at 8:15am and 5:30pm as well as twice druing the work day. Only a superhuman with a very understanding boss who lives very close to work and needs almost no sleep coud pull this off. This book made me feel that nursing while working was almost impossible without giving up on sleep and not being very productive at work. Now that I am back at work, I find that working and nursing can be accomplished on a much easier schedule than the book shows. Working mothers need support not unrealistic goals.
