Freezer Stock Question

Hi Ladies!

My DD is 12 days old and I EBF, I did the same with my son but can't remember the specifics of how I built up a freezer stash for when I returned to work (I never had a huge stock, just about a week or so worth). Anyway - when did you all start pumping to build your freezer supply? I feel like I need to be starting to do so soon but am not really excited to do so...with DD and my 23 month old son, I'm not sure when I'll have the time in the day to pump. TIA!

  • I waited until DS was about 2 months; I didn't want to mess too early with supply while my body was trying to figure out what was going on. I pumped every day after the morning feeding before I went to work and got a nice stash.

    I would wait a few more weeks. My LC told me to wait 6 weeks. Generally your supply is regulating up to that point and if you pump, you might start yourself an oversupply problem.  If you do pump sooner, just add 1 "feeding" a day to build the stash, don't go pumping after each feeding.
