My pedi says it is possible, but I feel like it may confuse my kiddo.
I have gotten to the point (from a huge oversupply) that I only make what DS needs and not much extra. I have been trying to pump at home rather than at work and for the most part it is working out.
DS usually drinks between 8 and 12 ounces of BM while I am at work for 8-10 hours (including commute). I nurse him in the morning before I leave, when I get home and again before bed. He usually wakes 1-2 in the night and most times will nurse once.

This is TL;DR and my thoughts aren't super organized because I am still trying to figure out how this can work. If you made it this far you deserve some noms...
and a drink...
