Re: Pumping in hospital?
Terrible advice. Simply terrible.
All you need to do to get supply going is to nurse on demand. As long as nursing is going well, you're not supplementing with formula, and baby isn't excessively sleepy or separated from mom for more than a small amount of time, then the baby will bring your supply in the normal amount of time (2-5 days postpartum). Pumping in addition to on-demand nursing is likely to provoke an oversupply of milk, and the last thing you want when you're trying to nurse a newborn is a huge oversupply problem!
