Re: When to pump? OALD
It's impossible for us to say when you should pump. It's just too individual a question to answer! If it were me, though, I'd start by evaluating just how much milk I was going to need. Are you planning for the occasional short absence, or are you planning to make this a daily thing? Are you planning on short separations (1-3 hours) or longer ones (3 hours or more)? If the separations are going to be occasional and short, you might be able to simply pump during the separation and get enough milk for the next time. If it's going to be daily or long, then you might want to be a little more aggressive about pumping, and get a bit ahead in your stash.
Since you have OALD and may still have some oversupply, as your baby currently needs just 1 breast per feeding, I'd probably choose a cautious approach. Pump a couple of oz per day, whenever is convenient for you. Maybe 4 oz if you're planning a daily separation. When pumping during an absence, stick with one breast as long as that's all your baby needs at a feeding. If he graduates to taking both breasts, then pump both sides during your absence.
Of course, play everything by ear! If pumping is bring back the OALD or exacerbating the oversupply, it's time to throttle back. If you feel like you're having trouble filling the bottles, step it up. Stay flexible and you'll do just fine!
