Re: Best Way to Pump (to build stockpile) and Breastfeed?
The best way to build a stockpile is to pick a time of day and pump consistently at that time of day for a good long time. Pumping right after the first morning feeding is how a lot of moms do it. If that doesn't yield enough milk, start pumping after a second feeding and do that consistently, etc.
I know you probably want to get out of the house right now, but it's still early to introduce a bottle. Most guidelines recommend waiting 4-6 weeks, and your baby is just 4 weeks old. For now, I'd take baby with you when you need to do an errand. Bundle her up in a sling and go.
