Re: Pumping with OS?
I think you start pumping the same way any other mom does: you choose one time per day, perhaps right after the first morning nursing session, and you pump and see how much you get. Now that your supply is fairly well regulated, you may not get a huge amount. Keep pumping every day at that same time, and evaluate. Are you going into oversupply mode? Are you producing the milk you need?
Pumping every 4 hours is fairly infrequent. I'd pump both sides at a time, because if baby typically takes one side every 2 hours that means both sides get drained every 4 hours. Again, see how much you're yielding with this schedule. If it's not enough, then you may need to do some pumping after nursing when you're with your baby. If it's too much, you may need to throttle back and pump less.
