I am expecting baby #2 in 3 weeks. I breastfed my first until he was 8 months old and pumped at work for 4 of those months. I felt like breast feeding was successful, but I had NO idea what I was doing as far as pumping went. I had a very old Medela PIS that was lent to me and that I believe was pretty inefficient. I started pumping a couple weeks in advance of working, but really didn't feel like I was pumping enough milk and certainly didn't have a back up supply. What I ended up pumping at work was what I ended up giving the babysitter the next day and it was very stressful.
I'm looking for advice on how to build up a milk supply so that when I go back to work it's not so stressful. Should I start pumping within weeks of delivery my baby? Should I pump on one breast while I nurse on the other? Help!
Thank you in advance!
