So I EBF my daughter for 14 months she is now 4 and I can't really remember pumping all that much for her. It seemed more of a hassle than anything since I was then and still am a SAHM. My baby boy will be six weeks this Friday! BF is going great! I started pumping about three weeks ago in the morning after his second feed about 8 or 9 not everyday but most I would say. I started out only getting 1 or 2 oz. total but it has been in increasing, today I got 5oz total. Most of the time I freeze it in Mommys milk bags but twice I just kept it in the bottle to take with me like once when I had a meeting at my sons school.
I currently have 21oz frozen in 1-3 oz portions. So my question is do I keep pumping and storing every morning? I dont want to create an oversupply of frozen milk ( I know it only lasts 3 months in there) but I dont want my body to regulate milk just for what he needs then if I do need to pump I am taking from what should be for him.... I know it will come in handly when we start cereal but thats a ways off.
Any advice or suggestions? The only thing I can come up with is keep pumping and if it gets close to the three month mark donate some of it?
Again I am a stay at home mom with no plans to go back to work until after his first birthday.
