Hello I applaud you for your committment to pumping and continuing to breastfeed when you go back to work. Have you discussed this with your boss? I know it may be an a subject you wouldn't expect to need to talk to your boss about. Maybe you can carve out just a few extra breaks that your boss can plan for so that you can pump when needed?
Here is a great article that addresses questions about pumping at work.
