I totally understand where you are coming from. I get so tired of being criticized for saying I'm tired. My mom is the worst. And my DH has mentioned giving the baby a bottle a few times.
I don't pump because I can't afford a pump that works. My baby is four months old and has never had a bottle but I really didn't plan it to be that way. I assumed I would pump sometimes, I've just not had the money to get a decent pump. I bought a manual pump from WM that expresses about half an ounce every forty minutes. Who has time for that? I bought a double electric with my last baby that worked three times before breaking on me, and also produced very little results.
I'm not going to lie, it is hard sometimes. I haven't been able to attend births since she was born and I work several hours a day from home writing, so sometimes it is a little grueling to not ever get a break. I also have three older children.
But with that being said, if someone handed me a pump today I don't know if I would use it. I am a little afraid that she would prefer the bottle to me.
