Re: pumping question

  • i get the best yield in the morning so i try to feed off one side and pump the other til around lunchtime.  i'm pumping right now cause i was out for a few hours w/o baby and i'm getting half out of both sides what i can usually get off one side in the morning.

  •   My daughter is  just 10 days old. I pump every 3-4 hours. That way there is always at least 2 meals waiting for in the fridge.  I guess it depends on how often your are feeding your little one too.  All I know is you want to  pump on a regular basis so your body can adjust when you need to make more. Hope that helps!
  • Most women have the greatest supply in the morning. Pumping 1 hr after LO feeds is what is usually recommended. My DD only feeds off of one side at a time so I've just been pumping the opposite breast at her first feed & last feed! It is working great!

  • what if you pump and then LO decides he is hungry again, will i still have enough milk to satisfy him?
