Timing of feedings will set itself according to your baby and you won’t have to worry about that. Low milk supply is a problem that is actually rare. Talking about breastfeeding fears with a consultant will be professional and should not be as scary as it seems. Most mothers also easily adapt to going back to work despite breastfeeding.
