Re: Building a freezer stash
I personally wouldn't pump that often -- depending on a lot of factors it could drive you into oversupply. You really don't need a huge stash going back to work -- maybe 1-2 days supply and then you'll be pumping fresh each day (I assume).

Personally, I find pumping to be a necessary drag. As long as everything is going well, I would delay doing it as much as possible. You'll get really tired of it while your working. I'd take this time to just nurse and enjoy your baby.
