I am currently a SAHM, and bf my 7 month old dd exclusively. I absolutely love it. DH and I had planned on continueing this until dd self-weaned. DH has a neurolgoical disorder, and has been trying to continue to work as long as possible so I can stay w/ dd. He cannot care for her on his own. Now it looks like he will definitely have to go on disability soon. That means I have to go back to work. I would only have to work 20 hours a week, but want to continue bf. I've never pumped, and dd has never taken a bottle. If he holds out until she is 1, what is the best way to go about helping her go a 5 hour period w/out nursing? Currently she still nurses often. I've been gone for 2 hours before w/ no problems, but any longer she gets very fussy. I know solids will help, but I want the transition to be as easy on her as possible. Is there something I can start doing now, or should I just not worry about it until I start work. She will be at home w/ dh and a nanny, but as she is my first, I have no idea what to expect.
