My DD is 4 wks old and I would love to pump and freeze so that if I ever need to be away from her, my DH can give her a bottle. I have rented a Medela Lactina and it's great! My question is:
Do I pump after I feed her?? (I do the block-feeding method for now and she seems to be satisfied after just 10-15 minutes on one breast) So, after I feed her on one side, should I pump that breast dry? Will this cause a big increase in milk production - I hope to avoid engorgement. I have size D breasts, so I think they probably hold alot-- is this going to be a problem?
Should I only pump myself dry once or twice a day or after every feeding??
AND, what are the "rules" on storing the milk- can it sit in the fridge for a couple days while I'm adding to it??
Thanks SO Much-- I have learned SO much from these forums- you ladies are just so knowledgable!!
