When I first decided to switch from direct nursing to Exclusively Pumping, I thought that I had failed at breastfeeding.
That was my negative, ignorant inner voice talking.
Exclusively Pumping, or EP, is breastfeeding. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. EP is not failing, quitting, or taking the easy way out. It requires time, planning, and dedication to supplying your baby your milk in the face of challenges and obstacles.
