Expressing to keep up supply when working

I am shortly going back to work full time. DS will be 7 months. he has done a few settling in days at nursery. He will only take a couple of ounces of milk from a bottle (is BF normally and refuses a bottle at home!). We also do BLW and he is quite good at 'eating'.

My question is how much do I need to express at work to keep my supply going. He would feed every 3 hrs at home but will go longer and still wakes a couple of times in the night to feed.

I only need to express once to get enough to send in with him (about 4oz) but will that keep my supply up?

At this point your supply should (and I use that word loosely!) be strong enough to cope, especially if you're still feeding in the night. Of you'd normally feed twice during working hours, but are going to express once for nursery, this really ought to be plenty.
