Tired of leaking breasts

I’m the main parent to take care of my newborn and as she doesn’t latch, i’ve to exclusively pump for her. Been going on for months and honestly it’s physically n mentally tiring. Sometimes when she’s being cranky and needs my attention, I missed or delayed my pump session and that causes leaking breasts and pain. I can only quickly pump out the milk as soon as I’m able to settle the baby. I’m so tired of leaking breasts and all the washing that is accompanied with the pump. Sometimes I have this strong urge to switch the baby to formula instead then i will also have more time for her without the pumping schedules n washing regime. I’ll like to know if working mummies are still keeping to the 3hrly pumping routine? How to juggle pumping n your rest time especially when u r returning to work?#pleasehelp

You could try handsfree pumps (a lot of affordable options in the market now). That would take care of the leaking breasts. Just gotta leave the cups in your bra and remember to empty them before the spill over.
