Re: Work and pumping question
Your milk supply is regulated by supply and demand. That is, your body will learn to make enough milk for your baby. The only way for your body to know how much milk to make is for your baby to nurse, and you not to pump. Once nursing is established, and baby is nursing well, you can start practicing pumping for when you go back to work.

Oversupply is just as much of a problem to fix as under-supply.
