I have to go back to work in 4 weeks. I love nursing my son, but when I go back, I will be working 3 days a week, over12 hrs each day. I plan on pumping at work, and I am freezing breast milk now when I pump. My mother will be watching him for me and feeding him bottles of breastmilk. Won't that cause a problem when I am trying to nurse him on my days off? And how do I prepare myself for the emotional aspect of having to share that special time with my son with others?Answer Question

Continue to nurse on demand when with him. Pump at work and after you feed him. Remember, that you will not get alot when pumping and baby can go quite awhile without milk while you are at work, then, make up for it later by nursing a lot. It is possible to do it and not formula feed. And also remember that he might not take a bottle and make be able to sip it from a cup.

By the way all that pumping I had done from the time she was born til I went back to work was a waste. Yeah it was still good in the freezer but what good did it do me if she wouldnt take a bottle. Good Luck Hun I hope this helps!
