Wow I can't believe I have been breastfeeding for 15 months! I love our breastfeeding relationship and have no plans of stopping soon. I am planning on going back to work part time and I plan on pumping. Has anyone does this before? I will be working at different schools so I am guessing the best place to do it will be in my car? My husband thinks it will be too much work but to me it is worth it Any advice would be great appreciated!
Here is a recent picture of us!

i went back to work when DD was 20 months. I didnt pump during my shift but if I came home after she fell asleep I pumped then. Before I was really worried that my supply would take a hit but I think it just adjusted. When I got home when she was awake we'd just have a nice long breastfeeding session on the bed. I found it quite relaxing after work.
My breasts hurt for few days at work but that too evened out pretty fast. Smart things those breasts .

COngrat's on 15 months! I went back to work when Maddie was 12 months and pumped for a few weeks and ten stopped. I'd nurse her before and after work and at bedtime and never felt engorged. She still nurses on demand at home when I'm not working and my supply was never affected. On the rare occasion where I've worked late and she was in bed when I got home, I'd pump but now I don't have to because my supply has balanced out.
It'll work out and it's amazing how our bodies adjust.
i went back to work FT when jacob was only 8 weeks old. i pumped until the day he turned 1. trust me , i was counting down the days! pumping is a PITA! i continued to nurse on demand when we were together. never had a problem with not nursing/pumping for the 10 hours i'm away from him. my body adjusted. we're still nursing morning and bedtime.
I went back to work when Graysen was 8 weeks old and pumped until she turned 1. She is still nursing on demand at home and my supply has totally balanced itself out. I did gradually wean from the pump in the month before her 1st birthday.
