Hello all! I need some pumping guidance. I have a one month old daughter and a 4 year old daughter. I started pumping when I returned to work with my First daughter (she was 4 months) so I am familiar with pumping at work. This time I want to start pumping now (at one month) so I can have more flexibility but need a guide to pumping if I'm only away for a couple hours versus an entire work day.
My questions are:
1. When and how often should I pump if I'm going to away from my baby for 3-4 hours and miss 2-3 feedings? Can I just pump before I leave and nurse when I get back?
2. When do I pump if I'm going to be away and miss just 1 feeding?
3. If I want to try and sleep a little longer stretch at night and have my partner do a feeding, when do I pump?
