I just read that Dr. Mercola has a new infant formula available.

HTH!

Forum crashing as my babe is a toddler. Mama, I am a visiting nurse and I also went back to work at 3 months post partum. I pumped in my car as that is my office 95% of the time. I just parked in places a little out of the way and sat in the back seat (my back seat windows are tinted). You can be quite discreet pumping in the car and if you bring a little cooler your milk will be fine.

Time wise it took me about 15-20 minutes per session and in the beginning I pumped 2-3 times while at work. I made phone calls or did paperwork while I pumped.

I understand time is a factor for you but is this something you could try? Then maybe if it doesn't work you would have your backup plan.
And bring lots of drinks with you for the day! And snacks you can munch on while driving!

Thanks to all of you wise mamas for your advice. I am going to make the effort to make this work. I think I was just thinking I'll nurse while I'm home and then I have to quit cold turkey when I go back but it's great to hear that you can continue to nurse/pump when you go back to work. and if the time comes that we need to use a formula I feel much more prepared and educated about that too. Many, many thanks!

come on over to the breastfeeding forum anytime! the mamas there love to share experiences and have loads of resources for working mamas, part time nursing, 'is this normal' etc, and they are very supportive.
