I've to head back to work in 2 weeks and will like to know if I keep up with usual breasfeeding when at home, but only pump once when I'm at work, will this be ok? I've a busy schedule and will only be able to pump at lunch time, will that be fine or will my milk supply be totally messed up?
Estm Schedule will look like:
12midnite - bf
3am - bf
6am - bf
(then about 7am, i'm off to work)
1pm - pump after lunch break
6pm - bf at home
9pm - bf at home
The baby will still be feeding evry 3-4 hours when I'm not home. Will this schedule be ok? Or will my breasts be engorged, leaking? Will supply be maintained? I work 5 days so weekends will be bf.
Also, should I try to pump now as well to store up freezed bm?
Appreciate any advice and help!
