How realistic is it to expect that I might be able to pull off staying home for 2 months and then going back to work but continuing to breast feed/pump at least for 6 months?

All ALers welcome!
I went back to work at 4 months and pumped for another 2 months. It was tough and my supply suffered from since it was tough to always get away at the right times and spend enough time pumping. I really think it depends on your job as well, but it's definitely possible. As others have recommended, definitely check some of the other boards for more help- the Working Moms board would be good too. GL!
