My lo is 5 w 1 d, and I'll probably be going back to work in about 4 weeks. When I start back, I'll only be doing a few days a week and can request to work evenings, so I'm not alone. This way, I can take breaks to pump. However, eventually I'll be working 9 hour days an hour away from home, and I'll be working 7 hours by myself. I thought I could pump once right before the store opens, and then once the other person gets there, but am I going to have problems with my supply if I go 7-8 hours without pumping or feeding, or might I just get a whole lot out of that pumping session? I will be working alone and waiting on customers, so it's not like I can just go back into the office and pump. I know I have a while to figure this out, but I'm stressing already. My goal is to bf for at least 6 months, but I would like to go longer.
My boss will be flexible with my hours, but financially I need to get back to work, unfortunately.
Thanks for any tips!
