Re: How to get started pumping while still nursing?
Another option is to choose one time a day to pump regularly. Many moms choose morning because supply tends to be higher at that time. If you pump right after nursing or pump one side while you nurse on the other you won't have to worry too much about leaving baby hungry. That's never truly a concern because your body is constantly making milk, even if you nurse right after pumping there will be milk there, baby might just have to work a little harder to get it. At any rate if you do it regularly your body will get used to producing extra milk at that time and your output will grow, though you probably won't get much the first few times. That's one potential benefit to starting now rather than waiting until right before the milk is needed.
At 3 months old I wouldn't worry too much about pumping while you are out unless you are going out frequently or you get uncomfortably engorged while you are out.
