I work full time and pump weaned at around a year or 13 months with my three kids. I'm still nursing the youngest at age 2 years 10 months. We nurse on demand during non work hours. The one thing to watch out for is if you are usually nursing throughout the day, and then you're sporadically not nursing on some days, then you could get quite uncomfortable and, possibly, develop plugged ducts. (Though doesn't sound as if that has been the case?) Some people are more prone to plugged ducts than others. For me, I had especial difficulty with plugged ducts after pump weaning with the third (who in retrospect nursed more during my non-working hours compared to the other two), so I had to go back to pumping for a period of time - actually it was most pronounced after we went on vacation together for a week where she was doing lots of nursing. So, just be prepared to either hand express or possibly pump if you find you are getting too full or if there are any problems with plugged ducts. Some moms do choose to continue pumping into toddlerhood to maintain supply, also.
