I'm facing a dilema regarding jury duty... I was called back in Jan '06 but ds#2 was 15m and still nursing quite a bit so I took my one postponement and was rescheduled for Feb 28th of last month. Well I'm 37 weeks pregnant and have horrible sciatic pain when I sit for a long time so my OB wrote a note to the court and they said they could only reschedule it for 3 more months (June 5th) and I would HAVE TO GO. So now I'm going to have an 8week old baby (or younger if I go late which all 3 dc have been) to worry about. I was told over the phone when they gave me the June date that they do let nursing moms pump but I'm not sure they understand it'll be every 1 1/2 -2 hrs as if I was nursing the baby.... I don't want to have to worry about getting him on a bottle of EBM that young since I'm a SAHM and don't really have a need to have him on a bottle at all. I'm actually thinking of having dh come with all the kids (8,6,2 1/2, and baby) and just nursing him every 1 1/2 hr. Think they'ld want to keep me thenI have this bad feeling that since I've "postponed" it twice already they'll really want to keep me for some stupid reason.... and it's not that I don't want to do it... I always though it would be cool but the time is just not right now. I've been looking at this site http://www.familyfriendlyjuryduty.org/ and it looks like Mass pretty much doesn't have thisI want to get a bunch of moms to write asking that they set this up. They have an "example" type letter on the site of what to write but who would I send it to? Just the courts.... like the judge even sees it. Who would I send it to in legislation? I have no idea who to send it to?? Any ideas? Anyone ever done anything like this and can point me in the right direction? I don't think this should just pertain to nursing moms either.... all moms of young children whether nursing or not shouldn't have to worry about finding childcare or having their dh or partner take time off (usually unpaid) or hiring a sitter. Other states have it... WHY DON'T WE?!
