    Default When to stop pumping

    I usually pump 2 oz in the morning so DH can feed DD2 a bottle in the evening. Once I get to 2 oz I stop even though I could go longer and sometimes I am still going even though I have shut off the pump. Is this ok, will that include hindmilk or not? I don't want to pump more than she eats.

    If that's all the milk you need, then it's fine to just pump that much. I wouldn't worry about the foremilk/hindmilk for a single feeding, it won't make any difference.
