I am going to return to work this coming Thursday, and work half days for about that Thurs and Fri and most or all of the next week before returning full time. The full time days will be a regular 8 to 5 day with hour lunch, half time would be 1 to 5, and the place I work for is very accommodating about helping me pump.
I am wondering how often I should plan to pump while at work? On the half days and the full days? DD just kind of nurses all day long right now so we don't have a schedule. She will be home with DH. We have talked about him maybe bringing her over to my work to nurse for lunch if he feels that is something that will be good for them to do. I am letting him decide if that is worth the trouble (and gas) for them.
Anyway, I am kind of freaking out about the logistics of this. my return date snuck up on me! I do have about 10 ounces of milk frozen, but we have not given DD a bottle in a long time and she was not too happy about it the last time although I convinced her to drink it. We are going to try again this weekend if I can get her to take a long nap so she will be hungry enough to go for the bottle (she tends to only catnap so it is hard to catch her when she is hungry enough to go for a non boob meal).
Any thoughts on this? I just want to know it is going to be OK.
