Re: New mom trying to build supply
with the PPs. Also, what sort of pump do you have? Many moms start out with underpowered pumps, thinking that they can make do with a cheap option. But a mom who is going to be working full-time or even part-time should get herself a really good pump. Medela Pump in Style seems to be the default good option for working moms.
Also, let's just imagine that you do end up in a situation in which you need to use formula- does that mean you need to stop breastfeeding and switch entirely to formula? Nope! Breastfeeding doesn't have to be all or nothing. Lots of moms end up combining breast and formula and nurse successfully for long periods of time.
