I'm going back to work next week and plan on pumping twice at work. Right now I have no expressed milk stored so I will be starting from scratch. What's the best way of doing this without building up too much of an oversupply? Should I just pump once a day from now until I start work to build up enough of a supply for the first day back to work? Once I'm at work I'll pump for the following day and so on.
My other question is since she currently only eats from one side at a feeding should I continue to alternate sides at work? If she eats from the right before I leave, pump only the left side the first time at work, then the right side the second time? When I come home she'll then eat from the left side. I'm just trying to make this transition back to work as smooth as possible. She's sleeping longer stretches at night now and when she does wake up to eat the breast that wasn't used at bedtime is soooo full, I'm not trying to make that worse by pumping too much!
