Re: Pumping - what to do on the weekend?
I didn't pump at all on the weekends, just nursed on demand.
I have a friend that only nurses her LO first thing in the morning then again before bed. The rest of the time baby gets bottles of pumped milk. Her sister did this with success so she is taking that approach. She uses the same pumping schedule on the weekends as she does on the weekdays, and for some reason this is reassuring for her.
IMO, using a pump while watching my partner give baby a bottle would drive me insane, but so far this is what they like to do.
ETA: I didn't see the comment about nursing all weekend hurting supply. Yeah, that is crap. Nursing all weekend will up your supply. Monday was always my most bountiful day, especially when I hit the 9 month pumping slump.
