Re: Back to work, losing supply
It's very common for moms to experience a drop in supply when pumping. The best things to do are to make sure your pump is in tip-top working order, to pump more if you are falling short on milk, to nurse at night, and to make sure your baby isn't being overfed at daycare (daytime overfeeding can lead to less nursing when baby is home with mom). If you can't pump more when at the office, add in some extra sessions when you're home with baby. If your baby sleeps through the night, try to wake him at some point to feed- more calories taken in at night means less need for them during the day. And if your baby is overeating at daycare, talk to the daycare workers about paced feeding and bottle amounts for breastfed babies.
Getting walked in on while pumping is an occupational hazard, and while it's embarrassing it doesn't usually hurt supply- unless the mom is getting so stressed and anxious about it that she can't let down for the pump. Maybe it's time to talk to someone in the office about a key for the door? Or stop by the hardware store and pick up a doorstop that you can wedge underneath the door, preventing people from barging in.
