    Default when to pump???

    My 7 month old nurses 4-5 times a day (and eats solids 3x). I would like to pump to have a supply of frozen milk for when I'm not with her or just so DH or Grandma can feed her sometimes. I was wondering when is the best time to pump without disturbing the supply when dd nurses? Should I pump immediately after nursing or sometime in between feedings? A few months ago, I was pumping regularly (2x a day) between feedings and getting 2-3 ounces per session but then I stopped for whatever reason and now when I do it, I get almost nothing. I know that the more I do it, the more milk I will make but I just want to know when the best time to do it is? Thanks for any advice!

    Before or after the first morning feed works great for many mothers.

    You have the most milk in the morning usually, so that is good time. I tend to pump in the afternoon because I know DD will be taking a longer nap then. It was easier for me to consitently pump in the afternoon.
