Re: When can I start to pump?
It is generally advised that moms spend the first 4-6 weeks just nursing, making sure the baby has a great latch and is adept at the breast, and getting supply more or less equivalent with demand. Introducing pumping very early on can result in oversupply, or tempt mom to offer bottles of milk long before a bottle should be introduced.
Since you have just 2 months before you need to go back to work, I would aim to spend the first 4 weeks just nursing. At 4 weeks, if nursing is going well, add in a single pump session per day, after your first morning nursing session. Most moms have the most extra milk at that time. If you find you're socking away several oz per day, then that may be all you need to get a great freezer stash going for your return to work, where hopefully you will be able to pump and thus bring home fresh milk every day. The freezer stash should function more as a cushion, in that scenario.
