Re: Just went back to work!
Matching your number of pumps to the number of times your baby eats is a rough guideline that will not apply in all situations. Some moms will need to pump less often than their babies nurse, some more often. Luckily, you are currently in the former camp. Keep aiming to drain yourself as well as possible, and you may be able to maintain that state of affairs. If not, you will need to dip into your stash and start increasing your number of pump sessions. Those sessions do not necessarily need to take place at work; a lot of moms pump in the evening after their babies go to bed, or in the middle of the night, or in the morning after they nurse, or on their commute, etc.
Since you're expressing and storing extra milk, are you periodically testing for lipase issues?
