I went back to work part-time when my son was 9 months old. I’d had so much difficulty with breastfeeding in the first 4 months that I was determined to keep feeding for as long as possible, despite the return to work. I had a chat with my manager about the fact I would need to express during the day to keep my supply up and she was super supportive. HR booked out a private meeting room for me at lunchtime and I was free to book the room at any other time I needed it.
