Heading back to work...

I'm heading back to work in a few weeks likely, only for a few days a week. I had planned to just pump while I was gone, DD2 will take a bottle. She'll be 11 months and I wanted at least continue through a year, although I'll admit I didn't really plan much beyond going back to work, probably because I really didn't think I'd make it this far!

I tried a couple weeks ago when DD2 was sick and sleeping a lot to pump, but got absolutely nothing with my Medela swing. So now I'm worried. I've pumped before, but being largely a SAHM I havn't needed to pump much at all. DD1 was on homo milk at this age, so I know it's ok, but I really wanted her to have breast milk mostly until she was at least a year. I know there's plenty there, she's still happy as ever at the breast, and I know she won't starve, but I'm disappointed because I wanted to do this for her. Any advice?
