    I posted these links in roeni's other thread.

    I am just trying to build a freezer stash so that I can be prepared for whatever the future brings...if I don't have milk one day I'd have some frozen to give him. Maybe I'm being paranoid but I just like to be prepared for anything I guess.
    I understand psychologically that it's nice to have a freezer stash, and sometimes it comes in handy. But I would suggest that your time with baby now is precious. When I look back on my maternity leaves I don't regret not pumping more! It's great that you are going to have a lot of flexibility around pumping at work. If that's the case, you should be able to maintain your supply, especially with lots of nursing at home, without needing a large amount of milk in the freezer.
