Re: Middle of the night pumping
No need to pour out milk. It's not a bad idea to mix all the milk from a day's pumping, though. Really, foremilk/hindmilk balance is almost NEVER a problem. People are way more worried about than it warrants.
I assume you're pumping at night in order to have enough bottles for the next day? Because you need the volume? I'd probably take advantage of the extra milk, then, to get a little ahead.
Keep trying to bring him back to the breast, because sometimes miracles happen, and as you know just nursing is so much easier. Good luck!
