Ha ha, first off, please know that that Legendary thing is not me...the website deemed me that, for reasons I do not understand. Maybe it's nicer than saying "Won't shut up about breastfeeding." Anyway, please call me maddieb or Meg. I am too young or anyway, too stupid to be a legend.
Ok, so it sounds like things are going really well, with baby more or less exclusively nursing, with the exception of the nipple injury, which I take it IS healing? Anyway, why, exactly, do you want to set up a pump schedule? And are you proposing something different from what you are already doing? I think I am missing something....
If pumping twice a day is working for you, fine, and if you want to pump in am and in pm, fine. There is no biological reason to pump on any particular schedule, so I would say, pump whenever it works best for you. Again while generally pumping is not required assuming baby is getting all baby needs at the breast, and instead is just extra work at a time moms really need no more work, there are situations it is a good idea to pump as I mentioned in my previous post. As long as you are not pumping to the point it triggers problematic OVER production, and as long as pumping is entirely comfortable and not causing further injury, then it is unlikely to be a problem.
I assume your LC has been working with you on latch. here is a good article with overview of many latch and positioning ideas, just fyi: http://feedthebabyllc.com/latch-and-positioning/
