I use the Medela Symphony pump.
I'm able to pump next to her isolette, and usually will after I finish holding her. The issue is I hold her while she is being gavage fed over an hour. I cannot put her back until about 10-15 minutes after her feed is finished, and I don't want to. This my one time to hold her each day, so I usually try to maximize my time, not putting her back till 10 minutes before I need to pump, so I get to hold her for almost 2 hours.
I'm toying with this schedule for 10 pumps.
3, 6, 8, 10, Kangaroo at 11 for 1.25 hours, 12:30, 2, 4, 6, visit again at 8, 9, 11
But I worry that this will just leave me stressed and sleep deprived. Planning my day around 8 pumps is stressful enough. Plus I've already missed a pump a few times when I slept straight through my alarm.
