Re: Breastfeeding questions(s)
Can you take baby with you to the mall, and carry her in a sling? If she is snuggled right up next to you, it's pretty safe. People who might lean in and touch/cough on a baby in a carrier are usually more reticent when baby is in a sling, because touching the baby would mean invading the adult's personal space.
When a baby feeds on emptier breasts, the milk is higher in fat than when the baby feeds on fuller breasts. The trade-off is that the milk volume is lower and the flow tends to be slower, so it may take baby longer to get full.
I think that the "thrown-off" production is probably in your head. The post-feeding pumping you are doing is minimal, and should not do anything to your supply aside from increasing it in the longer term, particularly if you are doing it consistently.
