Re: Confused about pumping
1. most people pump in the morning, after a feed. don't expect to get much - an oz would be great. in your situation with a single pump i'd probably pump the unused breast, but double pumps are so much more efficient, i always use them and then have extra milk to store.
2. depends on how your body responds to the pump; once you have a bottle in advance then ...
3. every time you are away you pump when she'd eat, so you'll be even and only need to pump when she takes a bottle.
