    You're not SUPPOSED to be full. That's fine. Full is bad. It's a precursor to engorgement and mastitis.

    If any of your co-workers get smoke breaks, you get a pump break. That's covered under equal protection. You can pump faster than most people can smoke...15 minutes start to finish.

    Still...nurse when home. Milk is made while nursing.

    i had 15  min breaks at work. i ate/drank while i pumped. everyone (my boss) knew i was pumping. sometimes it took a few mins longer, but you are allowed by law to do that.

    What do I do then because my boss kinda gave me attitude about pumping(after work)? ANd told me "Yeah, when we come back then you won't have to pump anymore"

    Check this out. You can search the document and find multiple mentions of regulations that mandate allowing pump time.
