Will my production decrease if I don't pump...?
My baby's 3 weeks old and I'm planning to go back to work when he's 3 months old. I'm a part time server and I don't think I'll be able to take breaks to pump:( ...The longer my shifts would be are 5-6 hours and I would only work 2-3 days/week. Is it OK if I don't pump while at work? I don't want my milk supply to decrease or to start going away that soon. I plan to start pumping soon and freeze. Is that OK? :confused:

Re: Will my production decrease if I don't pump...?
you might have problems you might not....
Some babies will sleep that long over night and mom and baby does just fine.
All you can do is try it..
I bet after the 1st few 6 hour shifts you'll be pretty full and leaking.
but your body will adjust
On days when your not working make sure to have extra time for the baby to nurse.
