Enfamil or Similac

Hi ladies, I am wondering if any of you have had the experience of using both of these brands and can help me make a decision on which to go with. I used Similac Isolmil Advanced with my daughter but just read a study that the Enfamil ProSobee Lipil has higher levels of nutrients in it than the Similac. I am so used to the name brand Similac that using something different worries me without some input. If any of you could share your experiences with me I would appreciate it! Also, just in case, I am not at all against breast feeding and...

Breastfeeding and Work

I will be doing student teaching next semester and I'm wondering how this will work. I won't be able to pump at the school for obvious reasons unless I hide in a bathroom stall (yuck). My pediatrician said to start weaning for when she's at daycare for the day and have her nurse while she's at home. I've skipped the occasionally feeding and my milk dwindles fast. Any other work experiences for breastfeeding mothers? I just wonder if this will work. I've tried saving milk by pumping but I just don't seem to get much milk from it..... ...
