This is my first post to the board but I have appreciated all of the info (and encouragement) from reading many of the replies from you expert ladies...thanks!
Our baby girl Lenora is 8 months old and has been nursing great since day one. My husband and I thought I would be able to stay home with her but it looks like I may have to return to work when my mat leave is over in June. I can't complain though since I only work two days a week so the majority of the time I will be with the baby. I would like to continue nursing well into her second year if possible. So, my questions are: what do I do on the days I would work? do I just nurse in the morning before I leave (7:15 am) and nurse when I come home (6:00 pm) and in the evening or, would I have to pump during the day at work to keep my supply up? Since all of the other days of the week I would be home and nursing as normal, would not nursing during the day two days a week affect my supply that much?
