Re: Can't always pump at work
Skipping your pump session consistently is likely to cause you to experience a reduction in supply. But I don't think this will be a huge problem for you, because you are working just 4-6 hours at a time. If you experience a dip in supply, you have a lot of non-work hours to make up for it, either by nursing more or pumping in addition to nursing when you're home with baby.
Don't skip the pumping sessions is you can help it. And perhaps on the days when you end up skipping, throw in an extra pumping session after your baby goes to bed or something, to make up (at least in part) for what you missed during the day.
It's great that you woke your baby to nurse when she was sleeping a long stretch! Very smart.
