I am currently nursing a 15 month old and working >40 hours a week. I just recently decided to stop pumping at work and instead just make sure to nurse before I leave in the morning and as soon as I get home. He still nurses like normal and days off and weekends so I don't think my supply has been too affected. I feel full but definitely not engorged or uncomfortable by the end of the day. I just had enough with the pump and am ready to stop, but not ready to wean. My employer had no problems with me pumping, the problem is that work has been too crazy busy for me to step away and find the time.
Wife. Midwife. Mother. Not necessarily in that order depending on the day!

This was the case for me too, except after a couple of months back, I dropped the after work session too. I did mornings and evenings until she was 22 months and have done just evenings since then. I will admit, I never had anything in the way of supply troubles though.

If your employer has an issue with pump-specific breaks, perhaps you could pump on your lunch break. That way it isn't an extra break. You could always quickly hand express a little bit a few times a day to relieve any discomfort as your body adjusts.
