Re: preparing to go back
For me, I have to pump 4 times at work (and sometimes again on the drive home) in order to get enough milk for the next day. I've always had lowish supply though. You'll want to experiment with how many times you need to pump to make sure that your supply doesn't drop. It depends on the person, but my rule of thumb was that I pumped everytime DS was getting a bottle. At first, he was getting a bottle every 2 hours at daycare... so I pumped every 2 hours. Now, he gets one every 3 hours, but I haven't been able to drop a session so I'm still pumping frequently.
