I've been at home with my girl since day one for the past 7 months. In a month she will be going to daycare and I have to go back to work. I love nursing and will be sad to give it up, but I don't want to have to pump at work. I'm a teacher on block scheduling so I'd have to get someone to cover during my class and it's too much.
In any case, I would love to keep my early morning and late afternoon/evening/night feedings but get rid of my morning/mid-day-afternoon feed. How would you go about this to best transition yourself, your body, and baby?
Would you start by substituting one feed for a bottle and then pump a little out? Should I start soon or wait until a week or so before I need to stop? Other suggestions?
