    Question Will my production decrease if I don't pump...?

    My baby's 3 weeks old and I'm planning to go back to work when he's 3 months old. I'm a part time server and I don't think I'll be able to take breaks to pump ...The longer my shifts would be are 5-6 hours and I would only work 2-3 days/week. Is it OK if I don't pump while at work? I don't want my milk supply to decrease or to start going away that soon. I plan to start pumping soon and freeze. Is that OK?

    Thanks!!!

    you might have problems you might not....
    Some babies will sleep that long over night and mom and baby does just fine.
    All you can do is try it..
    I bet after the 1st few 6 hour shifts you'll be pretty full and leaking.
    but your body will adjust
    On days when your not working make sure to have extra time for the baby to nurse.
