Ftm questions and concerns

Currently, I am breastfeeding my 9 day old daughter on demand with no problems. I would like to start pumping too so that I have a supply started and so my husband can also help feed. I'm very intimidated by pumping!

How often are you supposed to pump a day? Is there such a thing as pumping too much? I've been reading about possibly over producing and I def don't want that to happen! Do you pump before feeding or after?
Hoping I'm not worried too much about nothing! Thanks for any guidance and advice!!

    You pump after a feeding. I can't offer advice on oversupply since I'm a low producer and pump to try to stimulate more milk. I have found in my case that pumping is less painful than nursing. Pumping has been pain free, except when my nipple size increased and I needed to move up in flange size.
  • Try pumping once a day, in the morning when supply is highest, after a feed.

  • Great- thanks for the advice! ☺️
