Longer paid leave boosts breastfeeding success

The following is a link to an article about how longer maternity leaves would promote breastfeeding success. I went back to work at 6 weeks with my first and I was working full time. When she was about 3 1/2 months I went to part time and it was still difficult to keep breastfeeding but I am a stubborn person and she never needed to be supplemented but it was a long road. It has been much easier this time around because I work very infrequently. What kind of time do you get off from your company and if you are planning to continue breastfeeding when you go back to work do you have a plan in place?
