Re: When to pump?
Oh, they definitely learn how to work for it!
IMHO, pumps are great for working moms and moms with real supply issues and moms who want to leave bottles. For a mom who just wants to nurse and is able to nurse, using a pump introduces an unnecessary variable into the mix. Give your LO a chance to figure out how to be a good nurser, and odds are excellent that you will never need to touch a pump unless you want to.
