I've always felt a little tied down as a bf'ing mom, as I feel like I have to be there at bedtime. There have been 1-2 times where I've pumped and someone else has put Colin to bed, but I always assumed he needed me and a bit of boob before bed. And, to be honest i sort of like being needed like that...special because i'm the only one who can easily put him to bed
I was out tonight and intended on being home in time to nurse and put Colin to bed. But, when I got home DH had already put him down and he hasn't woke up! I feel a little sad - my baby doesn't need me at bedtime any more!!!
I am experienced enough however to know that I must pump before bed!
