Re: Going back to work and really stressed
I went back to work after 2 weeks (granted only part time), and my baby did just fine and is still nursing at close to 20 months. As long as you are pumping what your baby needs while you are away, there is no reason to think you will have supply issues. Just make sure to nurse frequently while you are with your baby. My baby only got bottles when I was at work and usually went on a nurse-a-thon when I got home.
Make sure your DCP uses a slow flow nipple and paced bottle feeding methods to reduce the risk of a bottle preference and over feeding.
You can do this! Try to relax and have confidence in yourself. If you have trouble pumping when you get back to work, remember that there are a whole bunch of women here that will help you troubleshoot and make it through!
