My lkittle baby is three weeks old and I'd like to start pumping to build up a good supply that I can keep in the freezer. I have a few questions about how to get started... (I should mention that my pump is a Medela Pump in style...)
1) He isn't on a feeding schedule yet, but he'll usually go at least 3 hours, usually 4 - 5 hours between feedings (per my doc, the long time bxt feedings seems to be ok since he's gaining about 2 ounces a day). Right now, the times that my breasts are really full are not in sync with when he wants to eat. When should I pump? I'm worried that I'll pump and then he'll want to feed again and I won't have milk for him.
2) When I pump, about how much milk should I be trying to pump out (in ounces)?
Any advice would be great! Many thanks!
