I wont keep your long I just have a quick Question...
I got a new job working 6-9am (No feeding missed) and again from 2-5pm but one feeding is missed. I cant pump on the job because I am driving for a Habilitation Center and have clients on the van. but I do miss a feeding that DH is using the freezer stock for. By the time I get home LO is ready to feed again.
Yesterday I pumped when I got home before I nursed but that made my body make MORE milk today in the afternoon. When do I get that extra Pump in so I dont have a missed feed and my Freezer Supply doesnt run out? No Pump = No bottle for DH to give.
I cant do it in the morning because he nurses twice before I leave so there isnt a missed feed in the am shift. I am home between shifts to nurse on demand but because of the AM shift he likes to nurse 3 times in that 5 hour gap so I cant pump then. The rest of the evening he goes about every 3 hours and then every 4 hours through the night. None of this leaves a down time to catch up.
If I pump one side while feeding the other my supply sky rockets. I dont know if its normal but I am regulated yet one extra pump (while nursing) makes enough for triplets the next day!
When would you suggest Pumping?
