Advice about going to work..

Hi! I am currently BFing my DD, and she is currently 9 months old. I have been working only at night, and pumping while at work to provide breastmilk to my daughter while I am away.. I am usually only gone for 5 hours or so..

She has started on solids, but isn't eating too much as she would much rather nurse.. and I am SO ok with that! :-)

HOWEVER, I might have to go back to work full time and with the demand of my new job I am not sure I am going to be able to pump as often as I would like in order to keep up with her BFing demands.. How would you suggest I go about supplementing? Do I use formula or not? If so, how much? I would like to be able to nurse her as often as possible while I am around her, but I am afraid my supply will lessen..

Any advice?

Do you think she would adjust her feeding schedule to eat more when you are home?
