So my new PIS is coming by courier tomorrow. I pumped a little early on (starting at about 4 or 5 weeks, DD is now 4.5 months) but stopped at around 2 months because of some OALD and engorgement and because DD was refusing the bottle anyways, so it seemed futile. I'm going back to work in 2 months, and now starting in earnest to try daily with the sippy cup to eventually get LO onto EBM in that.
My question: I don't want my oversupply and OALD to come back. Now at 4.5 months, my letdown is after about a minute of sucking, and my breasts are comfortable. I'm hoping I can comfortably pump once a day. Should I pump both sides? One side while feeding DD? I have the best luck first thing in the morning (DD is a good sleeper), but I don't really want to pump while feeding since I really enjoy our morning time together, and I don't want to ruin it with a noisy pump. Any tips on when/how often/single/double pumping? I know I have to go gently about it given my abundant supply, but I also want to start building up a stash in my freezer by pumping daily. I also hope I can get more with the PIS than with my single mini-electric.
Experience/advice appreciated. Thanks mums.
