I had always planned to stop breastfeeding by the time I went to work but kept one feed a day when I did go back at 9months. It was hard but I also think it was harder as I was stopping something that I loved doing and that bonding wiht my dd but also the fact I was returning to work and it made all the more painful. Once I actually returned to work it was not that bad but I did introduce formula over a few months. My DD did not like dropping the afternoon feeds but after a few days she was ok.

I know I could have continued with breastfeedign and continue expressing but I did not want the extra stress of that as selfish as that may seem.

I hope that helps
