    Default How do I pump enough for this !?

    I just got word that I am going to have to work on Saturday. I can use the breastmilk that I pump on Friday for my LO to eat on Saturday while I am gone at work. I'm freaking out because how am I going to have enough for her on Monday ? I usually pump on Friday and give her that on Monday. I have family coming in Saturday, and don't know how to work around pumping/feeding my daughter over the weekend ? I'm a nervous wreck and don't know how to do this one ?

    Can't you feed Saturday's milk to her on Monday?

    Yes. I had a panic attack and started writing before I even thought about it. Thanks !

    Just pump Saturday. If you come up short (because it's a shorter shift or for whatever reason) try to pump after your first morning feeding on Sunday to get some extra. Set up your pump in your bedroom, I've done that before for privacy when I had family staying with us.
