I'm going to be going back to school and teaching in the fall when my daughter is 10 months. I'll be gone all day Mondays and Wednesdays (literally from early morning til after she's in bed) and half day Fridays. I haven't pumped much (just bought a hand pump for occasional use) but am wondering if I could get away without pumping those days or if that would totally diminish my supply... If I do have to pump, how many times (I can't match the number of times she eats b/c I think I BF her 10 times a day!)
I was just reading about "pump weaning" -- if I don't mind my daughter having formula (which I know a lot of women here are against, but I'm not) will I threaten my supply if I just don't pump and just BF when I'm with her the other 5 1/2 days??
