    As for pumping breastmilk, it takes me 40 to 60 minutes just to pump 6oz. It's not easy.
    You've still managed to amass a post count of almost 17,000 on here though, and I think I remember that you'd written a novel on top of being a stay at home mum.

    Hospital grade pumps are really good but they cost like 1k to buy or £50 to hire each month thats really expensive if you bf up to a year, the midwives are rubbish at explaining expressing and the pumping avaliable, I had a crappy manual pump for 2 months and I used to cry it it was so slow!!!
    Oh god that sounds awful. You think someone would have sorted this by now no wonder so many people use formula!

    Given she has been a member for ten years, and has a posting average of less than five posts a day, I'm not quite sure what point you're trying to make.

    Still a huge post count, and a huge rate for every day. If those were well-reasoned posts, then I imagine that's a lot of time. Also, from personal experience, you can spend a lot of time sitting on here without posting because you don't know what to say.

    Your post count a day is 2.13. Hers isn't that much more.

    But I'm still not sure what that has to do with her report that pumping milk can take bloody ages.

    She discussed all her duties as a stay at home mum earlier in the thread and tried to make it out to be a huge deal.

    I know. But I don't claim to be a busy man, and I don't get paid for doing nothing. I'm running my savings down. I freely admit that I spend too much time on here. Even with my smaller post count, I waste huge amounts of time on here.

    Actually, she said
    Okay let's see, what official "roles" do I dabble in as a stay-at-home-mum?
    She used quotation marks around the word roles, and explicitly referred to herself as dabbling.

    I wouldn't really call that making it all out to be a huge deal. Just joining in the thread. Do you have a personal vendetta against her?

    Not against her. Just against stay-at-home mums who pretend they work hard.

    Perhaps you should discuss it with a professional. Your prejudice appears to be interfering with your day-to-day life, to the point it's impairing your reading comprehension.

    P.S.: I still don't see what any of this has to do with her report on pumping.

    Yeah. I have a sense of humour. I think bragging about qualifications is quite poor taste.

    But as you're asking, I even have a congratulatory letter from AQA for being "amongst the group of candidates who scored one of the top five marks this summer".

    Wow big ****.

    Luckily high school qualifications mean little once you get to uni (aside from maths olympiads, but even they don't matter much). Have fun realising how average you are.

    The TSR bragging always reminds me of my grandmother and father. My grandmother had address stickers that looked like this:

    Alice Jones (Mrs) BA
    ## Street
    Town

    My father cannot sign anything official without putting Cantab after his signature!

    Never said I wasn't average. I said I had a sense of humour. I'd hate to think that made me above average. If it did, HMV and amazon wouldn't have comedy sections, because the DVDs wouldn't sell!

    I cant stand stay at home mums that believes the world owes them a favour. It makes me cringe when I see people from school who had a kid at 16, and now rely on benefits, list their 'career' on facebook as 'full time mummy'. Does that mean that women who work and don't rely on the state are only 'part time' mums?

    These women think they have done something amazing to contribute to the world, but they chose to have children...
