I have to go back to school this fall. My schedule will be some thing like Mon. Wed. Fri.--10, 11, 1. Tues.--9, 12:30. Thurs. 12:30. I will also have to leave at least an hour and a half before the earliest, and can plan not to get home for about an hour and a half after the last. I can't pump her whole feedings even when I make a "fake feeding," or try and pump in place of a feeding. Does it just take a while to be able to create a feeding? I'm worried about not being able to keep up with her and about losing what I've worked so hard to get to.
This may seem like it is a little early to be worrying about it, but I need to be trying to build a freezer stash for this time and am just so scared that BFing is going to end come August. Is there a way I can do some serious pumping between now and then? How can I make sure I have a letdown and pump her whole feeding or at least close to it? Can I do power pumping at night after she goes to bed to help? If so, how often can I do this? I have to try and call soon to make sure I will have some place to pump in the fall. I will also have to figure out how to store the milk for so long.
