Hi, my son is 9 months old and has been breastfeeding very well. he was born prematurely at 5 lbs 4oz, and had open heart surgery when he was 4 months old. now, he is so strong and healthy and weighs almost 22lbs. since the surgery was done and he recovered so well, i decided to go back to work. (i'm a single parent). i was living in PA and got a job in MD. so here's the problem... being a single parent, i can't really pick up and go. so i had to leave my two children in PA with my parents until i find a place for us to live and childcare. (i pick up my key to our new place today, but no luck on the childcare yet.) i started this job on March 20th. they have flex time and allow me to work 4 10-hour days which gives me a longer weekend to go home and see my children. i've been pumping while i'm away from the baby, but lately i'm not getting as much. my breasts have gone back to their small size and i'm worried that i'm "running out of milk." i don't want to have to give up breastfeeding. i didn't breastfeed my first child because i didn't know what i was doing. i've come so far with this one and i don't want it to end. i've been taking some alfalfa supplements to increase my milk supply, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. can anyone help?
