As long as she has formula while you are at work... yes. Keep in mind that the less demand for breast milk... the less breast milk you will produce, so if you stop pumping you MIGHT stop producing entirely. Some women can go for months just feeding once or twice... and others lose their supply completely.

If you stop pumping at work it is very possible that your milk supply will decrease. If you want to increase your milk supply you could try talking to your doctor about different supplements or you could breastfeed less and give your daughter different food now that she's 6 months :)
