Thank you for your responses... Did any of you continue to express when going back to work??
Am hoping to continue for as long as possible.. But will be heading back to work in a year, so wondering whether my supply will keep up when I'm back at work.

Feeding a toddler is different to a baby, your supply is not as 'delicate' and you generally have milk when baby wants it.

I expressed at work when I went back to work two days at 9 months. When I worked a half day, I didn't bother as I only missed one feed but I did express when I worked a full day. DD had cows milk/almond milk from 12 months in a bottle and I stopped expressing. I've never had any supply issues though

My aim was 12 months initially, then I found expressing too difficult so was giving formula through the day at daycare and breastfeeding in the early morning and at night. I comp fed for a while, then when the night waking stopped and she started wanting milk with her meals I didn't offer it from the breast anymore and eventually she was having a sippy cup of formula with her breakfast and dinner and a bottle at daycare before sleeps along with a sippy cup at daycare for lunch. It was nice to breastfeed, and I do think breastmilk is really good and much better than formula, but it suited us to wean a little ahead of time. The longer the better though if you can, and I found the gradual weaning to be beneficial as well with the comp feeding and reducing numbers of breastfeeds because there was no oversupply issues like a lot of the other mums at daycare had when they weaned their babies cold turkey for daycare.
