Re: Scared about pumping and going back to work
Had the same anxiety. My daughter has never been the sleep alone type so pumping while she napped wasn't an option. I did sometimes pump one side while she fed on the other. Pretty good results that way as nothing stimulates my milk supply like the baby herself.
Just to let you know this can be successful, my daughter is now 17.5 months, still nursing on demand whole I'm at home but I finished weaning off the pump at 15 mos. when you return to work if you need any pumping success tips just post your questions right here. I found the whole process challenging at first until I got the rhythm down at work. Be sure you have pics of your baby to look at while puomg at work. Video/audio too. I found that triggered a let down in an environment that isnt exactly designed to get your milk flowing.
