I am BF and also donating milk. My supply seems to be fine and my baby is gaining weight normally, she is 3 weeks 2 days. I am pumping around noon everyday and I store 3-4 oz. to donate and then I have about 2 oz. left to store for my "stash" (I still have 9 weeks off). I really don't want to pump more per day because I don't want my supply to go up so much. My question is, can I combine milk from 2 separate days in one Medela bag. I hate wasting the space in the bag, just by storing a little bit. Should I just pump longer to get more milk? I am not emptying my breast all the way when I pump because I want to make sure that I have some for her next feeding. I am alternating breasts at each feeding, not offering both. What do you think?
Thank you very much in advance.
I have seen that this question was already asked. I apologize. I will look better next time.
